Education is Freedom transforms lives through education. Powered by AmeriCorps, the Citi Foundation and Points of Light, ServiceWorks is a groundbreaking, national program that uses community engagement and volunteer service as the primary strategies to help underserved young adults develop the skills they need to prepare for college and careers. We are partnering with Dallas Parks & Recreation Centers to provide a day of skill building with an emphasis on community service and engagement.
After skill building we want to immediately put our newly aquired skills into practice by havng a panel discussion about the issues the youth today feel are most pressing and create solutions to address them. We will engage in a capstone project to create sustainable videos that will serve as aides to homeowners and community members about what they can do to make their communities better.
To conclude the day, we will write our stories about the day's expereience and closeout with one word, our POWER WORD, that will symbolize what we plan to contribute to make our communities better.
