PICTURE PERFECT

No one understands the importance of beautifying a community like its residents. We guide our camp participants as they develop a sense of pride through beautifying their own communities. By doing so, we not only change unsightly areas, but teach the importance of following through. The before and after pictures are usually very popular among our stakeholders.  

To make this a teachable concept, we provide limited guidance to participant youth as they identify areas in need of beautification. At that point, participants take the necessary steps to complete this task before the next camp occurs. Equipment and supplies are provided by donors and partners, but only after requests come directly from camp participants.
