Common Ground Resource Center is a new organization, formally funded this year in 2015.
Committed to serving the public good by encouraging social change through emotional intelligence resources, humanitarian based goals, and healthy lifestyle choices.
The resources that Common Ground can provide are the FIRST of its kind! It is the ONLY service provider specializing in providing live information around emotional curriculum and healthy lifestyle choices- all for free! Our vision for this resource center is one that sees the youth beginning, at a younger age, to openly gain insight into self-understanding, thus making it part of their foundation for life. We created this resource center in hopes of supplementing general education with in our community.
Possible Service Topics:
Coping with stress, anxiety, depression, understanding brain function, somatic therapy tools, meditation, mindfulness, self-study and reflection, managing your finances, understanding the subtle cues of addiction, aromatherapy, proper nutrition to support the brain, teen advocacy education, etc.
In addition, we plan on connecting with the already existing service providers of the area to augment the community support, so that we can further model collaboration within community.
Summertime Humanitarian Camp:
An opportunity for kids to access compassion through philanthropy based projects. Providing daily classes, activities, and projects (weaved into a daily summer camp) that gives the kids access to the concept of helping others and allowing them to bring that into fruition, thus embodying the experience of giving.
This vision sprouted when three friends came together to water their seemingly, dormant feelings of wanting to be positive agents of change. We want to help foster new attitudes amongst the youth; one of hope and well-being through emotional development. Learning to love others through loving ourselves!
This fundraiser is a kick start for seed money that we need to get us off the ground, literally!
