Mobile Drop in Program/ Afterschool Program

Building Lives Around Strong Truth (B.L.A.S.T) is a mobile afterschool drop-in program for homeless and at risk young adults ages 12 to 24 from 2pm until 5:00pm at Brooklyn Park Community Library. We provide basic needs such as food, water, and clothing, for underserviced youth and young adults. As well as exceeding basic needs by making positive life changes and building leadership potential through self-care, important life lessons, problem solving, assisting with schoolwork, and job readiness. On Wednesday B.L.A.S.T is a less structured day for youth. Video game systems, board games, ping pong and open topic discussions allow volunteers to build positive and meaningful relationships with the population we serve. Wednesdays we have an Activity Van come to B.L.A.S.T so we can bring youth outside. Wednesday allows volunteers and mentors to get to know our young adults as individuals, to find their strengths and take note of what a young adult needs. Thursday’s at B.L.A.S.T are structured. Through mentorship, educational programs, homework help, and closed topic discussions; Thursday is about giving young adults tools to be able to go out into the outside world and be able to make positive and healthy decisions. Educational programs allow us to pour into these young adults lives, as well as inspire and equip them with life changing information.
