Ties to the community are incredibly important for youth as they grow into responsible, compassionate members of society. A strong sense of civic obligation to one’s community and neighborhood leads to strong bonds and relationships, hedging against gang activity, truancy, and other delinquent behavior. It also just feels good to give back to the community!
We sponsor service learning projects, where youth can volunteer at homeless shelters, get their hands dirty in community gardens, or visit with the elderly and disabled. Stay tuned to our site and social media for announcements of upcoming opportunities, and keep an eye on our calendar.
