A message from the leaders:
Youth Empowerment: ABCD targets strengths and gifts, we go into communities with the understanding that we aren’t going in to “fix anything”, we are going in to remind community members of their potential and capabilities. At The Meadows LifeLine Community Center, we know that empowering the youth is our chance to create a better future, it is reminding the communities youth that the world is theirs to grasp. Children are not given enough credit for how much they are able to grasp and the power that they hold, which is why we create a safe, structured environment at our After-School Program that encourages the youth to realize their potential. The children here participate in activities that promote growth academically, emotionally, socially, spiritually, and personally. From self-awareness to awareness of the world around them, we try to turn confusion into wonder, and with that, the possibilities are endless.
