I am grateful to MCCOY for the invitation to serve as a guest blogger in 2011. My blog posts will focus on breaking down barriers.
In youth-serving nonprofits, we want the very best for the kids we help. Yet and still, we run into significant barriers for achieving positive impact in the lives of children.
It’s our job to break down those barriers. We are the adults – capable of creating opportunities, cultivating support, and addressing challenges.
The kids? They are often stuck in circumstances, outside of their control. They are faced with challenges, well beyond their years.
It’s our responsibility to help kids. Get the tools you need to serve kids both effectively and efficiently. Take advantage of the local resources available:
Indiana Nonprofit Resource Network
Indiana YouthPRO Association
Indiana Youth Institute
Marion County Commission on Youth
United Way’s Nonprofit Training Center
What other resources can help you break down barriers to help kids? Please leave a comment with your favorite resource!
