The Drop

Quakertown Community Center

how are you defining youth and young adults?

QCC is looking to service youth (ages 13-17) and young adults (18-25) who are also:

o   At risk for drug and alcohol use

o   Parentless, directionless

o   Lost, feel hopeless, depressed or lack vision for their future

o   Need support to attain and maintain long-term recovery or resiliency

where will the quakertown community center be located?

“The Drop” is a QCC afterschool program hosted at the log cabin building next to the gravel lot of the Quakertown Memorial Park (50 N. 4th Street, Quakertown, PA).

how can i help?

We’re glad you asked! You can help us in one of the four ways:

 

volunteer opportunities

The Community Center is just that – a community – so it needs people! We are looking to build our volunteer teams and train them so we are ready once QCC opens.  There are various roles that will need to be filled, outlined below.  If you are interested, let us know how you can help out!  (insert how they should contact us)

·       mentoring staff:  We need healthy adults to supervise and engage with the youth during open hours.  If you have a passion for youth, and love to uplift and encourage, this is the perfect opportunity for you.

·       cleaning staff: We’ll need help cleaning the center after events.

·       musicians/artists/teachers: We need experienced musicians, artists, and teachers to offer lessons and support.

·       prayer support: We’ll need individuals to be available for pray with the youth when requested.

·       other:  Do you have a hobby or passion that you could share with a young person to broaden their perspective and invest in their future?  Are you proficient in a skill that you could teach the youth? Is there another way you can help that’s not listed?  let us know!

 

donate

While we don’t yet have a location, we are currently raising the funds needed to acquire a space.  Once the community center opens, your donations will also be used for staffing, program creation and utilities.
