Here are some real-life examples of what we are seeking:
The Dignity Project Auto Club provides "at risk" teenage males with minor automotive repair training, academic assistance, character development, and a healthy environment to build relationships. One product of the participants' training and hard work, a repaired automobile, benefits the Dignity Project's Vehicle Donation recipients. These are usually single mothers, whose primary reason for being unable to maintain consistent employment, is a lack of dependable transportation. The boys present the car keys to the mothers in a Key Ceremony, and pledge to maintain the car for one year after it is donated.
Art Behind Bars is an art program taught inside a women's detention center. Female inmates donate their completed artwork to an auction organized by their art teacher, and funds raised are given to a local children's shelter.
