Citizen U is an after school civic engagement, job readiness, and college readiness program for youth ages 14 to 18. It is targeted toward youth who live in the Focused Investment Strategy areas (FIS) of the Southwest and Southeast Quadrants.
During the school year the teen leaders make a difference in their communities through planning and implementing community improvement projects.
In doing so, they gain skills that help them make positive changes in their own lives. Over the summer months, the teens participate in community uplifts, complete service learning projects, and they also work in sites that explore their career interests.
For more information on this program, please contact the Southeast Quadrant Neighborhood Service Center at 585-428-7640.
