A group of local educators and community members began meeting in the summer of 2020 to explore ways to empower and meet the needs of our community. It was decided to use a “hand up” approach to meet the needs of the community through a mixture of support, education and advisement programs. During the summer a few members of our team began meeting with a group of youth for a time of fellowship and discussion. This led to the development of our youth mentor program.
In collaboration with Radius Church White Knoll, we were able to offer a weekly youth meeting in the Radius gym. Radius also allowed us to start a free G.E.D. program for those in the community who do not have a high school diploma. Along with the Youth Mentor program and Free GED Classes, S.E.A place now offers parenting classes and financial planning classes. All of these classes are held at Radius Church White Knoll.
