UFCF After School Program President Julien O'Neil on Community change

January 03, 2017 

From the Pine Hills Community Council Open House and oath of Office Ceremony. 1/3/2017 Just the Small segment with me. 
For future purposes, Pine Hills Community Council Meetings take place the first Tuesday of every month. 
As I spoke, I spoke as a concerned citizen and youth of the Pine Hills Orlando Area, a member of both the Pine Hills Community Council and the United Foundation of Central Florida. My stance has always been, in order to change the community directly, yourself with others, take what it is you do and bring it to the youth. This then making its way into the homes of many ultimately changing the minds of other youth and the adults around them. A child's influence is greater than what most think. How to reach these students, through after school programs. Support Non-Profit Organizations that focus on youth mentoring, tutoring, and after- school programs. Support the ones that are in existence already and have been proven to make a difference in what they are doing.

For example
Check out the United Foundation of Central Florida, their base school is Maynard Evans high School and they are trying to reach out to another school, but also need the support of the community and it's elected officials.
