THE STORY:

To begin to respond to the poverty in the area, Rockingham District Partners In Ministry seeks to advocate change through a Youth Empowered to Succeed (YES) program, which will reach and transform lives of the new generation of children and youth. YES works cooperatively to respond to the issues that plague our youth.

The purpose of the YES program is to build a stronger relationship with district youth and adults, provide tools of empowerment through education, advocacy and leadership training and development, as well as service-learning projects. As a result, youth will have an opportunity to develop awareness of issues that impact their lives, practice leadership skills as they become catalysts for change, and transform into leaders within their communities and amongst their peers.

Youth in the program are rising high school freshman, sophomores and juniors. They participate in an 8-week summer leadership academy and continue their service for the remainder of the year.

Throughout the growing season, youth work in the community garden located in Rockingham. The vegetables and fruit from the garden go to needy families in the area.
