Our Community Cleanup was a tremendous success. The youth came out at 8AM, bright-eyed, willing, and ready to shift mindset about climate change and global warming. The initiative was created and led by a 13 years old, Jaylah Hall, to "bring awareness to the ongoing environmental problems." She presented to the group of youth a riveting treatise on why this initiative is so important for all of us. "The reason for the earth warming up," she says, "is pollution which contributes to the emission of greenhouse gasses." If we do not pay attention to this crisis, Jaylah explains, youth might not be able to "step into the future."
A big thank you to all the youth and their parents for their commitment and dedication. They did an amazing job! Even the universe showed its support with bouts of cool-breeze-hugs which warded off the heat and held back the rain until after noon. Check out NACCA's Instagram page for more highlights and photos!
A few weeks ago, we sent out a community survey to gain insight and feedback in regards to the kind of programs and services that you would like to see in our community. The responses came quickly. Below is a summary of the report.
When asked, “What programs can we offer that would be beneficial to you and your family?”
When asked, “What services would you like to see offered in our community?”
When asked, “What changes would you like to see in our community?”
Over the next year, we will be looking at this information to inform how we deliver programs and services in the community. Thank you for taking the time to let your voice be heard. Stay tuned for what's next!
