WHY R&U Youth Collaboration Center? WHO will benefit?

Youth are looking for a safe place to go - with the crime rate soaring, homeless youth statistics on the rise and lack of mentors we want to be there for the youth.

WHAT is the Expected Outcome?

  • Kids off the streets – finding a “safe place”.

  • Relationship building & skills development & character building.

  • Activating the youth to reach out to others.

  • Custom and hand made: re-purposed items, jewelry, re-fashioned clothing, etc.) and learn to ‘sell’ them on-line via already established local on-line stores. 

  • Mentors will teach the youth how to do this, how to re-invest in support of financial responsibility, accountability and basic understanding of investments. (Not “handing a fish” or “teaching to fish” but eventually “buying the pond” - edited from famous adage”)

  • Modeling, training and mentoring how to manage finances

  • Educating the community to OPEN their homes and hearts to needy youth

  • Involving local community: churches, education services and families to get involved and synergize to fill this local need

  • Expansion into other communities...

 

WHEN & WHERE can we begin?

We have moved from TX to Florida and partnering with 12 Springs Community Services.

off of Blvd of the Arts & Florida Ave in Sarasota. We have the use of a beautiful warehouse and are beginning the structural build-out to bring it up to safety code and plan to launch our programs by the end of the year.
