#Corner65

A place for children of all backgrounds, cultures, and faiths to learn and grow with one another.  

COVID-19 UPDATE: The #Corner65 program has been modified to adhere to covid-19 regulations and restrictions and will continue to change as coronavirus cases worsen or improve in Cuyahoga County. We hope to gradually reopen as the pandemic alleviates. In the meantime, we are still taking volunteers for virtual tutoring sessions with our #C65 kids. Please continue to check this page for more information and updates. 

#Corner65 primarily works with the African refugee youth population in Cleveland. #Corner65 provides a safe space for personal growth, life skills development, and mentorship through activities such as basketball, soccer, volleyball, sewing, knitting, urban farming (caring for chickens and gardening), baking, cooking (utilizing yield from our garden), and art. #Corner65 volunteers and mentors help this young refugee community adjust to life in America and develop a deeper understanding of American culture. At the same time, volunteers and mentors gain a greater appreciation and understanding of various African cultures. #Corner65 youth also participate in weekly Bible studies which have the religious sensitivity to include children of all faith backgrounds. #Corner65 aims to improve the lives of all refugee families by helping to provide shelter, clothing, nutrition, and relationships.
