Youth Outreach & Gang Prevention Programs
The Salvation Army in Santa Rosa is giving young people a chance to discover their talents in a safe and nurturing environment.
Because of cuts in school funding, many children no longer have the opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument or sing in a group. The Salvation Army is giving young people a chance to discover their talents, in a safe and nurturing environment.
By providing a multi-faceted program with many different experiences for a child to sample, The Salvation Army in Santa Rosa will help a child discover where their true talents lie - and then we?ll help them develop those talents.
In addition to music, The Salvation Army offers scouting clubs to young people of all ages.
Sunbeams are for Girls ages 6-10, Girl Guards for girls ages 11-18, and the boys have Adventure Corps. They earn merit badges, perform service projects, learn teamwork, respect, kindness, and other great character building skills while having a great time and helping each other succeed.
Every other Friday night, from 6-8pm, teens and preteens meet for the Young People's Legion (YPL) and enjoy a variety of activities from playing pool and air hockey to having a Nerf gun war, to taking trips to see a movie or even down to see the Giants or A's. The teens get fed, entertained, and mentored and a chance to have fun without getting into mischief. Discussions about life, drugs, gangs, school are sprinkled into the fun.
