Engaging Youth, Serving Community 10

Grants and Contracts Details


Rural communities in Kentucky are plagued with a number of societal ills (i.e., substance abuse, obesity, hunger) that are prevalent risk factors among youth. While many youth engage in risky behaviors because of limited opportunities, adults lack the wherewithal to take a stand and help youth avoid negative behaviors by actively serving their community. This project will employ the skills of youth and adults who work together to identify needs and implement projects that address the issues hindering positive youth development. It will focus on targeting those youth with limited experience in citizenship and as community partners. An additional facet of the project will address getting more adults involved in the projects as supportive allies. The project will also examine how youth increase their community involvement and their perceived experiences as community leaders.
