But it also comes with some unexpected emotional benefits, such as increased self-esteem, improved empathy, and stress relIn addition, volunteering can provide teens with a sense of purpose that can help them stay motivated and focused on the future. It can also help foster positive relationships with people from different backgrounds, giving teens unique opportunities to learn and grow.
"Bags to Mats Program" 2023 Promotional Video
Our program's heartwarming initiative unites youth and community members to uplift the homeless community. Crafting durable mats from recycled plastic bags reflects a commitment to comfort and eco-consciousness, which is crucial during harsh weather. Key aspects of the program include a collaborative spirit, practical solutions for homelessness, sustainability, ongoing engagement, and diverse participation opportunities. The involvement of youth and community, supported by collection boxes and flyers, showcases an organized, community-driven effort. Recognizing youth with service hour letters underscores their valuable contribution.
