Thank You Spirit Mountain Community Fund!

We are thrilled to announce that the Spirit Mountain Community Fund has committed $40,000 to support the Lents Youth Initiative. This program at ROSE Community Development engages youth ages 14-19 from the Lents area in leadership development, sustainability education and service-learning through internships and projects with community partners.

Our local youth are making a difference. They are working on projects that include habitat restoration, community food access, sustainability awareness, and art & media projects.

By creating a vehicle for community groups to collaborate on projects and attracting youth to support those projects, the program acts to focus, amplify and catalyze existing community improvement work while cultivating a new generation of environmental justice leaders in East Portland.
