SevenDays® Value: Youth Development

We recognize that people are not born with hate.

By educating our youth, we are setting the stage for increased consciousness, civil engagement, and interaction among people of different backgrounds.

Our youth will take us ONWARD to a more peaceful world.

It us through the lens of this value that we seek to not only engage with the youth in our community, but provide them with opportunities to personally and academically grow. Our hope is to spur more thoughtful, proactive kindness development among all of our young people.

Here are the opportunities currently available, in addition to everything else on our Get Involved page.
