Mentors Are Needed

A mentor is someone who offer guidance, support individuals, and build strong relationships with young people.  The support and encouragement given by mentors helps cultivate positive and healthy development in the things they do.  A mentor is someone a young person can trust and look up to.  Whether it is teaching them computer skill, helping them with their homework, or just simply having someone to talk to, a mentor can make a big difference in a young person’s life.  If you have any small amount of time to help mentor a young person, we need you…


Access To Computers

Many people in low-income areas do not have access to computers.  In today’s world if you want to move forward in life, you need to know how to use computers.  Giving them access to computers to continue learning or to put together a resume for a job will boost their confidence.  We want to teach them the skills in using computers.  Children who do not have a computer at home will be able to research their homework and do better in school.  There are many opportunities for those who want to learn and continue to grow.

Never Stop Learning

Learning is not all about computers.  It is also about picking up a book and learning how to read.  Knowing math and how to add and subtract.  It is about learning the history of our country and understanding the culture.  It is about learning science and how cures are found for diseases. Studying and learning more about the world helps you determine who you want to be.  At the learning center, we want to give everyone the opportunity to continue learning.  Knowledge is immensely powerful, never stop learning!

Express Yourself With Art

Art is a highly diverse expression of human creative skills.  Art can range from visual expressions, performance art, paintings all capturing the way that an artist express themselves.  Producing art is to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.  Many artists are stifled because they have no way of expressing themselves.  We look forward to offering artists an outlet at the community center to find themselves and to express their artistic abilities.


Make Playgrounds Safe…

A playground is a place where children can play safely and enjoy themselves.  How can they play on playground equipment that is not there or is broken?  There are no slides or swing sets, and the basketball goals have no nets.  There is not a merry-go-round, seesaw, or even a bench to set on.   Then there are the gun shots in the area.  No child should have to experience this when they only want to play.  We hope to build a safe playground for children to feel comfortable playing and enjoying the outdoors.
