Who We Are
Created in 2011, Coahoma County Youth Outreach and Enrichment is an advisory board consisting of 10 members, charged with promoting and emphasizing the positive health benefits associated with outdoor recreation and increasing education and enrichment opportunities outside normal school hours.
Our mission statement is simple: To provide diverse year round opportunities by creating and providing recreation, leisure, enrichment and others services necessary to promote and improve the overall quality of life for all the citizens of Coahoma County, Mississippi.
How You Can Help
Your community needs you! By supporting the efforts of Coahoma County Youth Outreach and Enrichment, you are choosing to support our youth, you also help to improve your community. Remember, an organization is only as strong as the community that supports it. During 2014, we received an outpouring of community support. With your help, we can have an even more productive year!
The cost of becoming an annual program sponsor is $400. Community members who wish to become program sponsors will have a banner displayed in the court area during all events for one year, receive a framed certificate of appreciation, and a listing on our web page.
We understand that not everyone can support financially, however, your time spent volunteering is just as valuable. If you have experience in graphic design, grant writing, or just have any ideas to help move us forward, please contact Benjamin Earnest, Director at (662)645-5703, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What We Do
During the summer of 2014 the Coahoma County Board of Supervisors designated the Expo Center and Fairgrounds as the new location for a Recreation and Wellness center. In the upcoming months, Coahoma County Youth Outreach will begin to offer number of activities, sports programs, and events that are designed to engage our community. With your help and increased community support we hope to expand these services in the future to include a broader range of activities.
When the Coahoma County Youth Outreach and Enrichment board was created, members developed goals based on short term and long term needs. Many of these goals were realized within a few months, while others are ongoing and require more time.
Over the next several years, Coahoma County Youth Outreach, along with community support, will be adding many new activities and amenities to the Expo. Within five years, we hope to have a fitness center, dedicated space for academic enrichment programs, playground equipment and sports fields, along with gymnastics and other fitness centered activities.
