Project Genesis is a safe and professionally supervised environment that supports individual and group success by fostering healthy peer relationships and interactions. The center aims to be a productive place where youth can form friendships, complete homework, explore personal interests and hobbies through classes and group possibilities all while working with staff and peers to navigate the social and emotional challenges of adolescent life.
Project Genesis is entirely free to middle and high school-aged youth and provides free meals to all its attendees. The center runs and upkeeps an outdoor education program that consists of beehives, chickens, and a vegetable garden. The youth are able to grow seasonal vegetables and share excess crops with families, explore the crucial roles bees play to the environment and have a hands-on approach to understanding how to maintain a successful chicken coop.
