Splash Jam-This is our annual summer kick-off block party and safety-awareness event! It has been named the biggest water gunfight of the year!

We need you for it all!
Youth Through the Years Program(Mentoring)-Everyone needs help! Here is where you shine, give someone the gift of a friend, a brother, a sister, or just listen. Our youth through the years program is where you partner with a younger sibling for at least 8 hours a month, giving them an experience of a lifetime. Our goal is to stop crime and empower, and as a youth through the years, mentoring you will be an integral part of making that a reality! You will be the face of The Fountain City Difference Project!
Tutoring (English math, science, history)-Empowerment in every aspect of life is what we are! Are you a Math genius, a Science Wiz Kid? A history Bluff? Or is sentence structure more your speed? If so, we need YOU to help change the lives of students challenged in these areas!

Youth Retreat -As our focus remains to empower YOUth with choices, we want to show them there are choices outside of the city and within! We will select a destination that will engulf their culture, experiences, heritage, and life with our youth retreats! These retreats are meant to be a time where they can hang out with their peers and enjoy being kids without the world’s pressures! This is a time for them to get away, learn, and cultivate lasting relationships that will carry them for the rest of their lives. To do that, we need YOU! We need you to be a part of their Youth retreat experience! Help us plan, help us teach, support, guide, and listen! Our youth retreats are one weeklong and happen once a quarter.

As we are focused on empowering the youth in every area possible, help us set them up for success with a college readiness seminar, a work-study seminar, or financial literacy seminar.

There will never be a shortage of children that deserve options. There will never be a child that shouldn’t have a choice because of their circumstances, so help us provide those opportunities; the village it takes to raise the children can’t happen without YOU!
Volunteer Recruitment-We need the people who can get us the people. Are you the person who knows the people! Need we say more! We are adding programs regularly, and we need hands to help us operate them and ensure their success. Can you help us find them?
Workshop Volunteers-Self Defense, Gun Safety, and Domestic Violence Education. Although these are our signature workshops and focus, we are regularly looking to add and develop new areas in the lives of our city’s youth, so suggestions are always welcomed!

We want to ensure that our youth are receiving the information vital to their empowerment in a way that is relatable yet fun, impactful yet effective, and easy yet essential! Is that YOU?
