We need many volunteers and sufficient funding to continue providing for area youth in grades 6 - 12. Below are the benefits and the blessings needed to fulfill them.
Benefits for Youth
We follow strict protocols to provide safety for our youth. at all times..
Power House programming provides a variety of opportunities in many areas of youth interest.
All youth are encouraged to express themselves through word and through actions- our volunteers lovingly encourage continued growth and development.
Youth are engaged in choosing the activities and soon we hope to begin a youth council to support and represent the youth voice.
Within our programming opportunities exist- to support what we do- from sharing a skill with others, respecting one another, respecting equipment, and even helping to clean up after events.
At times we may also conduct community service projects to broaden our understanding of what it takes to make a successful community.
