You can continue being part of the CHANGE remotely!
Our most popular project, where many volunteers have created strong friendships!
Staff and volunteers work closely with teenagers in rural communities. These communities have a wide range of social issues, including high teen pregnancy rates, family violence, substance abuse, bullying, and lack of opportunities to pursue higher education.
We strive to help teenage participants strengthen their sense of identity, develop confidence, pursue better opportunities for their future by offering them a safe space to learn about themselves and be heard. IChange uses a curriculum designed to provide information, facilitate activities, and lead discussions through empowerment workshops. Topics include sexual education, healthy relationships, self-esteem, substance abuse prevention, goal setting, and leadership development. We work closely with teen participants by creating a fun and safe environment. Workshops will be on Zoom.
