TO BUILD AN ATMOSPHERE OF FUN AND SELF ACCEPTANCE, FOR THE PURPOSE OF CREATING STRONGER COMMUNITY THROUGH COLLABORATION, STRONGER LEADERS THROUGH MENTORSHIP AND STRONGER FAMILIES THROUGH EDUCATION SUPPORT.
CORE VALUE 1
ENVIRONMENT OF RESPECT FOR
SELF AND OTHERS
We value relationship and respect in our center. Youth and families are invited to be themselves, meet others and try new things together.
CORE VALUE 2
Our mentorship programs for youth leadership include personality tests to learn about personal strengths, project RENEW, and SMART goals, which focuses on developing and achieving life goals, and volunteer opportunities to make a difference, become a mentor and join the A17H team.
CORE VALUE 3
EQUIP LEADERS TO BUILD COMMUNITY WITH
A POSITIVE CULTURE
To create a positive culture we must be educated and equipped to do so. These opportunities include providing resources for families in need and educating families on suicide prevention, teen depression, substance misuse prevention, resilience and health consciousness
EMPOWERMENT THROUGH MENTORSHIP
AUSTIN17HOUSE IS A 501c3 NON PROFIT
Through community support and fundraising efforts we have been able to provide a safe place for youth and families to enjoy life, provide meals and educational workshops surrounding suicide prevention, mental health and substance prevention for FREE!
As volunteers, in partnership with AH, our job is to provide a safe place for our youth to enjoy themselves in a fun environment, help youth make new friends, try new things, and support their gifts, and learn to be leaders to create an enjoyable community center for all to feel welcome.
