Impact Makers – Building Skills for Life

Impact Makers – Building Skills for Life is a program to help youth gain a deeper understanding of themselves and the world around them. In this 12-week program (8 weeks for summer), participants learn about the issues facing our local community and the support resources that are in place to help address them. Through an immersive service-learning experience, youth have the opportunity to serve the community and empathize with the experiences of others. Together with the caring Impact Maker team and fellow peers, they uncover the tools needed to support both themselves and others.


The next cohort of Impact Makers will begin Wednesday, June 26, 2024
