Our group is committed to developing opportunities to increase community engagement and participation. Our goal is to work alongside Somali youth to get them involved in their local community through volunteering to foster leadership and stewardship while working to cultivate meaningful relationships through collective work.
From our past experiences with hosting a community event we have used Morningside park as our green space to hold a community barbecue. For our barbecue we utilized the park space by including other activities such a painting workshop, bounce castle, soccer, and henna. We believe that it is important to have these types of events within our community to demonstrate to others how they too can enjoy their local green space. We want to provide opportunities for play and to foster a basic sense of environment.
