OC Higher Ground is able to identify youth in high-risk environments and provide them mentorship, and a safe, caring space for growth. The OC Higher Ground project will provide much needed supplies, education and grounds aesthetics to help the organization serve youth in elementary, middle, and high school students.
Their organization is focusing on awareness programs so students can avoid human trafficking, and unsafe behaviors. They serve between 100-150 students in the Anaheim area on an ongoing basis. They ensure a peaceful place for students to do sports, gain nutrition, enrichment and family services. The grants will meet the educational service goal of the club
10-15 Rotarians and Non-Rotarians in a yearlong program will assist with upgrading their environment, providing supplies, support after school sports
