BENEFITING: ST CLAIR SUPERIOR DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION
EVENT DATE: Mar 03, 2017
Each summer the St. Clair Superior Teen Center at St. Philip Neri Family Center employs teenagers in community development projects that the teens themselves plan and implement. We are currently asking for donations and volunteers to support the Teen Center programs. Contact Philip at 216-881-0644 x110, firstname.lastname@example.org to donate or get involved.
Gardening and Cooking
Our Garden program has already started seeds for the summer. We plan to improve our raised garden beds, install rain barrels, expand our compost system, and explore other permaculture and urban agriculture topics. Our Cooking program will take our fresh, teen-grown produce and create a gourmet menu for the Freshtoberfest culinary competition in September. We need chaperones and donations for added supplies. Anyone from professionals to hobbyists are encouraged to help out.
Urban Design and Video Blogging
Each year we study computer and digital media topics. This summer we will combine Google Sketch Up 3D Design with Computer Mapping to let the kids explore hands on community development exercises. We will also be employing teen vloggers (video-bloggers) to document the teen center programs in progress during the summer. Professionals and students are encouraged to get involved. If you have a blog yourself, or if you have any experience in video production, GIS, or Google Sketch Up please contact Philip. This is a great business sponsorship opportunity for local manufacturers, architecture firms, or companies in the digital media industry.
Public Arts and Hip Hop Camp
The second mural designed by the Teen Center will be painted by our teen interns. We hope to install our second community mural on Superior Ave by September 2016. We will also be engaging the teen artists in a week long Adventures in Stone Carving arts experience. They will study and carve under the direction of two master artists. Finally we hope to host the Fresh Camp positive hip hop camp this year so that the Teen Center MCs and producers can create their second Positive Hip Hop Album. Volunteer artists of all mediums are encouraged to help out. Business sponsorship could potentially mean stone carvings for your store front or lobby or a future Mural on your building.
And the Rest of It…
A few skateboard activities will include skate park trips and construction of a ramp or another skateboard element. ACT/SAT Bootcamp will be held to prepare upperclassman for these college entrance exams. All of our before mentioned programs will engage in career exploration fieldtrips and job shadowing days. We will also hold life skills classes throughout the summer to take advantage of these growing young minds to ensure that they are well-rounded and healthy. Finally we will hold our Summer Youth Festival on July 23 at the Teen Center. The teens will be crucial in planning and running the fest. Please contact us ASAP to sponsor of volunteer for any of the rest of it.
