Youth Development Program- August 2022
The Youth Development program initiatives focus on developing essential skills to help youth (14-18) succeed academically and in their future careers while supporting DSquared's causes to assist the homeless population. Participants will develop communication, teamwork, empathy, time and project management skills, creating and managing social media campaigns, and more.
What's different about this program? I'm glad you asked!
Youth 14-18 are eligible for this opportunity; it is not specific to high school seniors!
DSquared incentivizes participation through a point program that allows participants to cash in their annual accrued point balance for a cash value that can be used to cover educational support and learning supply expenses. As participants complete specific volunteer or development activities, they can unlock and earn points, up to a maximum of 750.
Examples of ongoing projects and initiatives participants can take part in include:
Hosting their hygiene bag fill or plastic bag drive
Recruit individuals to shop on Amazon Smile, selecting Dsquared as their supporting charity
Coordinate a community or school donation drive
Fundraiser to support our homeless and mental health challenged clients
Si Se Puede Degrees Of Freedom Robotics Team: The Si Se Puede Foundation's mission is to provide opportunities for underserved youth to develop an interest in and proficiency in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (S.T.E.M.). The S.T.E.M. Center was created so that young people, regardless of socioeconomic circumstances, can learn manufacturing skills, video production, 3D printing, 3D modeling, electronics, robotics, and more.
