Quincy Partnership for Youth began our strategic planning efforts with a needs and resources discussion. We charted the resources on a map of the city. Resources include but are not limited to Renew Behavioral Health, Quincy United, Head Start, Serve Quincy, food bank, Recreation Department, library, Community Health, city parks, the summer weight room, QPY, YAI, SOS, New Hope, and Habitat for Humanity.
Some of the needs we determined were job opportunities for teens, volunteer opportunities, access to information (bi-lingual) multi-age activities, transportation, a recreation guide, recreation, small group activities, and middle school clubs.
We also discussed participating in a B Street Block Party event and local partnerships.
Now that we have assessed needs and resources, we will be ready to define our efforts further. Check out next month’s meeting and get involved in that conversation! Please join us to continue making positive moves in the community!
