The Idea


In this time of economic hardship, everyday citizens need to become actively engaged in improving their communities. To revitalize a community we must instill compassion and leadership skills in our youth. This will allow them to become the next generation of empowered citizens.

The Specifics

The youth of Port Angeles, WA have amazing potential to become empowered and engaged citizens in their community. They understand what it is like to live through hardship, and many of them are looking for a positive path to improve their city. With $1,000 we would like to give sixteen 6th graders a chance to start down that positive path.

We would like to use the money to create a weekend retreat where the students from two different schools would have the opportunity to develop leadership skills and learn what it means to be a citizen. Through this retreat, we hope that these sixteen children will be ambassadors of positive change as they begin middle school next year both to their peers and within their community.

"We" make community. Not "they" or "them." What a wonderful idea to help our young people to know that they are "we."
Thanks, AmeriCorps!

Leadership, education and innovation is especially important in a small, fairly isolated town like Port Angeles. This is a great idea for our youth, and to buoy our community!
