The Neighborhood Enrichment Project
Hello and thank you for visiting The Neighborhood Enrichment Project. Our primary website is currently under construction so we are using this as our landing page and donation website.
Please visit our Facebook and YouTube pages by clicking on the logos above to view pictures and videos of our work.
Our flagship initiative is The Bridge Youth Leadership Movement (BYLM).
The Bridge Youth Leadership Movement’s mission is to enhance character and social-emotional development while preparing youth as leaders for themselves, their family, and their community.
Our youth learn that Leadership exists when people are no longer victims of circumstances but participate in creating new circumstances.
In the traditional sense a bridge is a structure that allows people or vehicles to cross an obstacle such as a river or canal or railway etc. The Bridge Youth Leadership Movement is a symbolic “Bridge” that provides youth access to knowledge and exposures that will assist them with crossing over life’s obstacles and reaching success.
Every bridge needs a solid foundation to stand on. The Bridge Youth Leadership Movement stands on the foundational virtues of:
Respect- I will respect myself and others.
Accountability- I am responsible for my actions and decisions.
Discipline- I will learn what is expected from me and do it over and over and over.
Achievement- I will set obtainable goals and take action.
Integrity- I will be honest with myself and to others. My words and my deeds match up.
Personal Growth- I will be proactive in my pursuit of self-improvement.
Positive Communication- I will communicate positively with myself and others. I will strive to understand first then to be understood.
Perseverance- I will persist in the face of adversity.
Tolerance- I will respect the individual differences of others. I will treat people the way that I want to be treated.
Empathy- I will seek to understand the feelings, thoughts, and experiences of others.
The BYLM is facilitated at The Jefferson Park Recreation Center in East Point Ga. afterschool during the 2012-2013 Fulton County Schools calendar year. We work with youth in grades K-12.
