Youth Partnership

 OUR GOAL IS TO BE AN ACCEPTED,  PRODUCTIVE  MEMBER OF OUR  COMMUNITY. WE WOULD LIKE TO CHANGE THE WAY THE COMMUNITY VIEWS INDIVIDUALS WITH  EMOTIONAL, MENTAL & BEHAVIORAL CHALLENGES. WE FEEL WE CAN DO THIS THROUGH EDUCATING  OURSELVES, OUR PEERS AND THE COMMUNITY ABOUT THE CHALLENGES THAT SOME INDIVIDUALS FACE EVERY DAY OF THEIR LIVES. WE WOULD LIKE TO TURN THE NEGATIVE IMAGES INTO POSITIVE ONES THROUGH  COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT. WE FEEL THAT WE CAN BE A POSITIVE,  PRODUCTIVE MEMBER OF OUR  COMMUNITY THROUGH  VOLUNTEERING AND EDUCATION.
