Mission Statement

To provide community service opportunities that will foster a greater sense of self-efficacy and leadership among under-served youth in our community, thereby increasing the sense of community belonging and social responsibility among individuals.

Description

Upward Roots provides community service opportunities for youth in under-served, inner-city schools as a means for leadership development and community building. We operate in after-school programs on a weekly basis and meet with members about what it is they want to change in their neighborhoods. We change communities from within by completing youth driven service projects once a month. Members are exposed to leadership development and are challenged to develop a service project plan in their school, the community, and the county or state throughout the academic term.
