ENGAGING YOUTH IN COMMUNITY PROJECTS

Sullivan Renaissance Seminar on Wednesday, February 3

January 21, 2010

[FERNDALE] – Opportunities for young people to become involved in volunteer projects throughout Sullivan County are the subject of a seminar hosted by Sullivan Renaissance.  The seminar will be held on Wednesday, February 3 at 7:00 p.m. at the CVI Building in Ferndale. 

Geared toward adult leaders and volunteers, the seminar will address several key areas:

  • A simple assessment that can be done by any organization to help identify young people in the community
  • Ideas to recruit and reward youth volunteers
  • Sullivan Renaissance opportunities to engage youth including: grants, internships, scholarships and program ideas
  • Models that have worked in other communities

“Most young people would love to participate in a community project, but often they are not asked or don’t know that the projects are happening,” said Sullivan Renaissance Program Officer Denise Frangipane. “Sullivan Renaissance would like to continue to promote volunteer service and help communities reach out to the next generation of leaders.”

Sullivan Renaissance has several programs that are youth-focused, starting with the basic requirement that young people be included in all beautification projects.  There are numerous volunteer opportunities, scholarships and paid gardening internships. 

Everyone is welcome to attend.  Refreshments will be served.  To register by February 1 or for more information, visit www.sullivanrenaissance.org or call 845-295-2445.

WINTER CONFERENCE

Individuals interested in Sullivan Renaissance should also mark their calendars to reserve Saturday, February 20 for the annual Winter Conference and Expo at the CVI Building.  A special workshop for volunteers under 21 will be offered along with other topics such as gardening, community development, the environment and economic development.  The keynote speaker is garden expert and author C.L. Fornari “The Garden Lady.”

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.  Additional funding has been secured by NYS Senator John J. Bonacic and Assemblywoman Aileen M. Gunther.
