Committed to a brighter future for children, neighbors and communities.

We consider a healthy neighborhood to be one that is safe, clean, and diverse; one in which it makes economic sense for people to invest and one where neighbors manage change successfully.

Grassroots Teen Leadership – Our FutureLeaders

The Grassroots Teen Leadership (GTL) program is well under way at Waco High School and Rapoport High School. Students receive practical leadership skills training and work together to create a community action plan of their choosing. High School students are often told that they can be leaders … later. The GTL seeks to dispel this message, instead encouraging students to take ownership in their community, as leaders, now. As one Waco High School student wrote, “This is making me want to become more involved in my community. I can make a change.” We believe this to be true, and are excited to see the change that these students create in their schools and neighborhoods.
