Youth Life skills and Scholarships
Organized by: Hengehog Improvement Project Coordinator
January 02, 2017
You can easily become a hero. You can empower kids that might have no other chance to succeed, no other opportunity. Fear and isolation, gangs and meth... only working together can we raise them above these traps.
Hengehog Improvement Project (HIP) is specifically designed to do just that. With your support, "HIP" will buy this house - at an extremely reduced price. With your Ideas, our kids will learn to make choices, to impliment them and learn valuable life skills. We *must* act quickly to capture this opportunity!
We believe this house is the *perfect* platform for learning, and an anchor as a youth safe house and support center.
Funding goal is for *ENTIRE* project, including Scholarships. (and pizza).
Learning: To make the best choices for this house they learn to make better choices for themselves. Our team of construction specialists, military veterans and volunteers will see that they excel.
As key project points approach, we offer all donors (this means YOU) the opportunity to submit suggestions of material and design for the Students to evaluate (developing skills in functional mathematics and effective levaluation), approve and vote on. You suggest, they decide - part of the 'fun' in their learning experience.
We've seen a serious NEED and realize it IS in our power to do something about it! If we offer our hand, we can lead our children from darkness into dawn.

Our Recipe for Success:
Take One (1) distressed house,
Add handfuls (teams) of eager Youth, desirous of Education and Opportunity,
Stir in an equal number of Disabled Veterans as Mentors, seasoned with Experience.
Then mix ingredients carefully with Team-building Supervisors.
Expose to diverse Learning Opportunities for 180 hours or more.
Yield: Win, Win and Win! (School credit, Scholarships, Self-esteem - and pizza!)
The Scholarships will be paid directly to the school each student chooses - carrying your gift well beyond this training opportunity.
Please pitch in to make this a true Recipe for Success. Contribute what you can; funds, prayers, ideas, and share as widely as possible.
We've done the math: If only 2000 people out of the millions on line are inspired to donate $70 or more (over one year that's *less than* 20 cents a day) we easily reach our goal!
Remember, the kids we train today may be your neighbors, in-laws or coworkers tomorrow :)
