Peaslee Neighborhood Center, Community Education Program: Youth living in inner-city neighborhoods like Over-the-Rhine have limited access to quality service, engagement and extracurricular opportunities because their schools are overtaxed and under resourced. Peaslee’s Community Education Program reaches out to low-income youth in Over-the-Rhine and other urban communities to offer opportunities for service, community engagement, creative expression and leadership. This is achieved through three projects: 1) Urban Plunges for local high school students, 2) Students Writing for Our Lives groups with youth 3) Youth Community Engagement Project (a program where youth are encouraged to engage in their community through create expression).
