Coalition for Community Schools - Because Every Child Deserves Every Chance

Youth Development



 
Youth Development

Children need enriching youth development opportunities if they are to grow into well-rounded, successful adults. Too often, the traditional school day has been dominated by math and reading, while enrichment and youth development have been pushed to the side. In a community school, community partners design all types of innovative, fun, and educational activities for students – from urban gardening programs to mentoring and internships. Young people have such varied interests and inspiring creative skills. Community schools provide an opportunity, an outlet, for these young people to explore their interests and grow into highly-skilled, creative, and well-rounded adults.
