"Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all
those acts will be written the history of this generation...It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped.
Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lots of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope,
and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of
oppression and resistance."
Senator Robert F. Kennedy, 1966
Healing Hearts Youth Leadership or affectionately called "H2" is a program created to engage teens in empowering and purposeful activities in their spheres of influence while impacting their community with the ripple effect of a sense of belonging and connectedness to their place in life. Graduates of H2 will become more resourceful and service-minded agents as they collectively work toward a common good not only today but in their future lives as hope is threaded within.
H2 structures various teams in order to reach the goal put forth by the teens. Each participant is enabled by staff to experience first-hand the role of co-leaders and co-planners grooming them for management. Graduates of H2 will also be eligible to be future mentors at Healing Hearts and Souls.
