Cherrie On Top Youth Center is an outreach organization founded in 2012 in Houston Texas. The founder, Sharea Quarles has worked in youth programs and Education for over an decade and she truly understands what's missing from our public schools. She states, " The key to being a productive citizen is a balance of life skills".If you change your mindset, you change your life! Youth need to learn how to take care of their mind (literacy, positive communication, conflict resolution, education,) body (nutrition, health) soul (exploration, meditation, affirmation). Also, diversity (travel, explore, create) is a major factor as well. The organization's founder has been dedicated to providing these particular life-skills through enrichment programs and events for over 7 years.
The Future for Outreach Programs and their Impact
Cherrie On Top Youth Center recently took a group of youth on a cruise to Mexico. This is a huge step towards at risk and minority youth expanding their diversity pallet. It's also a huge step in pushing other outreach organizations to invest capital into youth traveling abroad. Globalization will soon rule public relations and the work place. Community organizations and leaders must make sure minority and at- risk youth aren't left behind.
