Some of the basic skills that are taught within this program include baseline auto maintain and "handy-man" work, speaking and writing at a high level, all sorts of culinary arts, and endless life skills.
SUMMER YOUTH COLUMBUS CLEAN UP
In hopes to eliminate violence among the youth, this Clean Up program provides a weekly clean up event through various parts of the Columbus area. Our youth in this program have an opportunity to earn cash and other prizes for recyclables collected, as well as various other clean ups performed.
As a reward for our kids' hard work, a delicious meal is provided at the end of each event. The youth involved may receive continued incentives for their effort and participation.
To aid in the cycle of poverty caused by death in low income families, we created a partnership to educate and provide affordable life insurance benefits to families in need.
S.O.S. Columbus partnered with American Income Life in doing so. Check out their website http://suracesmith.com for more information on our partner company.
This program is simply to provide helpful information on community resources that are available to you via our monthly newsletter, as well as through our email (). We put this program together because oftentimes people in our communities, especially the youth, are unable to receive the information necessary to help them develop and understand what is currently going on in their own community. This is our way of providing them with the information they deserve to be presented and shown.
