Adolescent Wellbeing and Health Richmond, VA

Volunteer Venture Richmond focuses on education and healthcare in relation to poverty. Its service will be a combination of childcare-, health-, and education-centered sites, where participants will have the opportunity to engage with the community and children through recreational activities and guided projects. Discussion during the week will include topics such as the nature of poverty and factors that influence health and education. In addition, Volunteer Venture Richmond hopes to open a dialogue on the effects of poverty on children and how positive learning environments can be encouraged by individual service and collaborative relationships.

From having a dinner in the historic Fan District to enjoying an afternoon relaxing on the James River, participants will also get to experience a slice of Richmond, the state's capitol!
