YOUTH PROGRAMS COORDINATOR
Edgehill Neighborhood Partnership (ENP) offers an after school program for middle and high school girls, most of whom are from families in generational poverty or have experienced violent dislocation from their country of origin. Located on the Edgehill United Methodist Church(EUMC) campus, The Spot is a safe place where teenage girls from the Edgehill Neighborhood are nurtured through positive relationships as they work to become their best selves. It is a place where they can enjoy a meal together, get to know each other, explore their interests, receive help with homework, play games, build community and learn to be leaders. Additionally, there are field trips, college visits, educational opportunities, and fun activities throughout the year. Core values of The Spot include creating a community of trust by listening and respecting each other's unique voices, building resilience and knowledge of how the world works, developing personal values and taking individual responsibility for choices.
