Power of Youth

The Power of Youth program empowers middle school and high school youth to become social change agents and use their voice, strengths and talents to initiate positive change in the community. Youth participate in civic and service-learning projects.

Our Power of Youth program kicked off this summer with a virtual Purpose Challenge workshop. The workshop, designed for youth (ages 12-16), was hosted by DHNS Youth volunteer Rayne Kimble and was facilitated by Blue Zones Project Fort Worth. The workshop helped youth identify strengths and develop purpose statements. Follow-up workshops were held to encourage youth to develop actionable ways to utilize their strengths in service-learning projects.
