Programming Changes

As the number of COVID-19 cases continues to increase in our area, effective December 3, we have transitioned to remote programming once again. We expect to return in person on January 4, 2021, and welcome a new cohort of young people for Mental Toughness starting on January 11th.

While we may not be in person, our schedule remains the same with our members focusing on their high school programs in the mornings and then joining us from 12:30 to 4:30pm Monday through Thursdays.

If you have questions or need to reach us, please send a message through the website, call the office, and leave a voicemail. Someone will check messages at least three times during the week.

Until we return, we wish all of you a wonderful holiday season!


Below is a picture of Gavin and Dakota with the Giving Gracious Groceries box that they thought of and built as part of a Youth Leadership Council Project. In order for them to maintain the box and keep it stocked, they need to create fundraising opportunities. This is one…

Flower Power Fundraising allows you to purchase bulbs for planting this fall and by using our specific webpage (CLICK HERE), Project REBUILD and the YLC group will receive 50% of the profits. It’s a win/win for everyone.


Help us Help our Neighbors

Have you seen the “Giving Gracious Groceries” Box, yet? Our Youth Leadership Council (YLCs) wanted a means to help our neighbors with groceries. With funding from Youth Service America and the Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation, they were able to secure funds to build a box that debuted to our neighbors at the beginning of July. 

Now, we need your help to keep it full, and there are several different ways you can do that.

Have you ever wondered how you can help Project REBUILD students? There are several ways and here’s one of them… Be a Mentor! 

Project REBUILD is launching a new mentoring program for our students, who are 16-24 years old. We are looking for mentors to connect with our students for 1- 5 hours each week.

You can be a mentor.

You can change a student’s life.

As a mentor, you can change the direction of your young person’s life by merely being present.
You can expand your networking and professional skills by joining our mentor network.
Coaches, teachers, and co-workers have mentored you. Now you can pass it on.
Your skills, experience, and friendship will help a young woman or man become ready to succeed in the workforce or in college. All of our mentoring will be structured activities at convenient times for your schedule.
Contact the office at  (330) 588-3205, option #2 or for more information.
