M.A.D. Skills (Making A Difference with Skills) give teens at YouthHope a chance to express themselves through poetry, dance and drama. This is a great way build confidence. In addition to weekly meetings, M.A.D. Skills also performs at events and Poetry Slams in the community.
M.A.D. Skills meets at 6:30pm on Wednesdays at the Rock Island Youth Center.
Performances by students in M.A.D. Skills occur throughout the year for local events, at churches, and on college campuses!
YouthHope cannot empower youth through programs for youth, after school activities, tutoring and youth camps without the help of volunteers. If you are excited about the mission of YouthHope, there are many opportunities for you to volunteer!
