Neighborhoods (3)

Many Houston-area youth will graduate from more than high school this spring. Some will also graduate from one of several COH Department of Neighborhoods youth programs.

DON offers these programs to help young people develop important values and skills such as responsibility, accountability, networking, communication, teamwork, and problems solving.

Youth this spring participated in several DON youth programs including the Mayor’s Youth Council, the United Minds Youth Leadership Council, the Ladies Choice girl groups and the Young Fathers program will turn their tassels as graduates of the class of 2015.

Many of these students have been participants of these programs during all four of their high school years. DON youth programs provide opportunities for young people to develop important values and skills such as responsibility, accountability, networking, communication, teamwork, and problems solving. They participate in service learning and community outreach projects, group activities, workshops and instructional classes.
