Youth Engagement Project (YEP)
Because of a very generous grant from the Highlands Cashiers Health Foundation, we were able to create the Youth Engagement Project. This is a volunteer program for young adults, eighth grade to college-aged, in our area to provide insight in various career opportunities including health care, social services, nonprofit management, education, marketing, outdoor leadership, and more, while also working to combat social anxiety. Young adults involved in this program will work alongside our Program Director during family retreats, retreat planning, team activities, and more. Members will learn valuable leadership and communication skills, while also being introduced to various resources to help them become more successful in the future. It is our hope that through this program, young adults will be able to apply The Still Place mission statement and core values to their life, while also brightening up the path for their future.
