Community outreach is the drive to go out and impact the community in a positive way. There are many ways to promote community outreach. Through volunteer work, community service, and activism in political issues; we will teach participants that they are all stake holders in our community and it is all of our civic duty to provide help to those that need it. Detachment of youth in their community is always harmful; by actively going out and doing good locally, we make them a part of something much larger.
Community exploration focuses on the individual. All over the United States there are youth who do not take advantage of the things that make their community unique. Through exploration we will set up field trips to locations and businesses. Some trips will be formatted for fun while some will be more educational; focusing on future goals of individuals we will set up tours of local business and different establishments to show participants different career paths so they can create their own career goals and aspirations.
We are so grateful to have community Partners like A Salon 7 who help Build Our Center to raise awareness and funds for a much needed center.
