During the next three weeks, area youth will be exposed to the value of community service via the "Project SOAR Days of Service Challenge." This activity endeavors to inspire students in the development of a personalized foundation for civic action and thus create values that (hopefully) will result in a stronger, more caring community, now and in the future.
This initiative aims to both expand the impact of existing activities by engaging (new) youth volunteers in their work and encourage youth to develop their own projects under approved adult supervision.
To stimulate interest, select Project SOAR student groups will participate in a friendly competition, the "Days of Service Challenge". As a result, the top four groups who achieve the highest number of service hours will be given the opportunity to designate cash awards to a school activity of their choice.
All participating Mentees will be recognized in electronic publications of the 100 Black Men of Madison.
