Join the “cycle-ists” of Stewardship!
Solar Youth: Kids Explore! Kids Do! Kids Teach!
Ride alongside us and help us reach our goal of raising $5,000 dollars, all while supporting New Haven youth! Solar Youth is a New Haven based nonprofit who’s mission is to empower youth to achieve lifelong success. Through programs that connect youth to the environment, their communities and each other, youth build the skills and motivations necessary to contribute to their community, create healthy relationships, maintain physical and mental health, and develop economic self sufficiency.
We focus on the three neighborhoods in New Haven that struggle with the highest rates of poverty, unemployment, crime and violence in the State of Connecticut, and have the fewest resources to support youth development. Our core program model, the “Cycle of Stewardship” allows our Stewards to Explore! Do! And Teach! through programs, presence, and partners. Our Stewards explore their communities, plan a Community Service Action Project, and teach their families and community members about what they have learned while focusing on environmental exploration, youth-led problem solving, mindfulness, non-violent communication, and youth leadership.
Just take it from our youth & all they have accomplished…
