We develop community leadership through our volunteer programs, service-learning training, goal-setting, and supervised activities. The Youth Leadership Program cultivates a good work ethic, transferrable employment skills, and a charitable heart. We provide opportunities for youth to become capable, ethical, and responsible citizens while developing a strong sense of community. Whether completing Green Cord service, achieving Eagle Scout recognition, or documenting service hours for college entrance applications, resumes, scholarship applications, Youth Mission, and Confirmation goals; youth participants benefit by gaining valuable skills. Youth seeking to complete Court Ordered Community Service hours have the opportunity to do so in a positive, character building, and faith-based environment.
The Community Storehouse Junior Board provides young leaders in our community the opportunity to hone their leadership skills. Junior Board Members learn what it means to serve on the Board of Directors from current Community Storehouse Board member mentors.
The Community Storehouse Youth Leadership Award identifies young people who are working to make a difference in our community. Applicants must demonstrate leadership and ingenuity as trailblazers undertaking community initiatives that have measurable results. This award and $1000.00 scholarship are presented to the winner at the annual Community Storehouse Hope Dinner and Auction.
“I have always enjoyed serving my community, and hope to continue to serve and encourage others to serve everywhere I go. My family is very servant hearted, and they taught me how to be a servant at a young age. I founded SOA935 with the intent of reaching out to low income families in my community in order to serve them and make them feel loved. Serving others will always play a huge role in my life.”
– Hannah Berry, 2017 Community Storehouse Youth Leadership Award Scholar
“Service to others and giving back to the community has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Growing up in a military family, these values were instilled at a very early age. I saw firsthand the importance and value of service, and knew that helping others would always be a big part of my life.”
– Zane Fortunato, 2016 Community Storehouse Youth Leadership Award Scholar
“Helping others within my community has given me and opportunity to build new relationships and over the years has helped me to find myself and become the person I am today. It has offered such great life experiences, and by reaching out to help others, it means doing something positive and making an impact on people’s lives.”
– Lauren A. Crawford, 2015 Community Storehouse Youth Leadership Award Scholar
