Far too many of our youth are faced with daily challenges of broken homes, lack of mentorship, unrelatable school curricula, low expectations and a lack of a sense of belonging and feeling loved. These deficiencies can manifest themselves in the forms of low self-esteem, violence, lack of interest in school, poor choices in dating and relationships, low cultural self-esteem and the repetition of destructive cycles.
IMPACT OF ACTION
Clever Communities In Action sees the best in our youth and communities. We impact literacy in the public school system while motivating youth to positively influence their surroundings. The results? Higher self-esteem in our youth. Whether we’re placing over 1,500 culturally inclusive books into the libraries of Title I elementary schools, or developing mentoring programs that instill a love of reading, we’re teaching life skills AND promoting self-value and worth within the context of the individual and society at large via literacy initiatives and advocacy. Clever Communities In Action innovatively dismantles the literacy gap that exists in the African- American community.
