Operation Come Home is proud to formally announce a new program called ArtWorks. In partnership with our community partners at United World Voices, youth are provided the opportunity each Thursday in the Drop-in and Resource Center to develop their creative skills. Currently, youth work each week on creating jewelry, customizable belts and dog collars using recycled bike tires and tubes.
Operation Come Home and United World Voices are committed to providing unique and educational learning opportunities for youth. Our next collaborative project will be sewing tote bags with the youth on Thursday afternoons.
Youth are also invited to craft fairs and other events to learn business skills such as customer services, sales and marketing. These opportunities provide youth with safe and supportive environments for them to develop their techniques in leadership and basic job knowledge.
