Wellness & Community Building
The primary purpose of FIERCE’s youth development and community-building programs is to build and foster a stronger and more stable sense of self and community. Our approach to youth development and community-building is not isolated from our organizing work. On the contrary, this work serves as the underpinning to the building and exercising of our collective community power.
FIERCE has held a number of community-building events establishing ourselves a place where people come to meet others going through similar life experiences, get individual support, and get involved in opportunities that address the underlying reasons why our communities face so many challenges. We have supported many members in gaining housing, jobs, mental and physical wellness opportunities, and educational opportunities. This support has helped our members stabilize their lives, which has translated into improving their ability to become active leaders at FIERCE and in our community.
