Color The Community
About the project
Color the Community Projects create opportunities for youth to get involved, get one on one mentoring, volunteer, and can be either a short-term or long-term commitment. Projects and Meetings are on a rolling basis, and do not interfere with holidays or school. The intention is to create additional opportunities for youth outside of their normal school setting.
The Goal of this project is to get youth inspired to volunteer in their communities while preparing them for what to expect on the Color the World trips. Youth develop skills such as:
Knowledgeable skills needed for build projects (painting, woodworking, paving, etc.)
Team Building and Communication skills
Practical skills such as clean ups, maintenance, yard work, and quick renovations
Senior Project/Community Service hours completions
Educational Excursions outside the Brick and Mortar classroom
Friendships and networking between students as well as community members, liaisons, mentors, and global recipients
In order to participate on the Color the World trips, youth are expected to participate in the Color The Corld projects. Youth who complete 150 hours of project time can have a portion or all Color the World Trip expenses covered.
