Mozaik

Mozaik group members set their sights on providing an educational and fun summer program for many of the region's at-risk, or high-potential youth. Particular emphasis was placed on children between ages 7-12 living in the poorer peninsula communities around Charleston. Their vision culminated in the creation of a five-week night camp called "Camp Hope" that provides positive, educational experiences for these youth for five weeks during the summer. Team Mozaik utilized the power of partnership and brought together 24 agencies to partner in providing this camp. Objectives include: sharing knowledge of healthy and safe lifestyles; exposing children to diverse experiences; providing leadership from a diverse group of volunteers; developing positive mentoring relationships with strong role models; encouraging recreational activities; cultivating leadership skills; and setting optimistic expectations for the youth.
