We’re excited to kick off an historic project in Racine…
Excited about our community service project, Planters for the People, Planting The Seeds for Growth! A collaborative community service project lead and created by our amazing youth of Sentinel Mentors. Involving community partners, This is a unique training opportunity where our youth will learn how to use tools of the trade to design and build beautiful flower garden planters for the community. Youth will develop skills such as the safe use of power tools, 3D Printing & graphic design software as well as learn about construction materials, terminology, and MORE! We have a few more spots available for youth 5th - 12th grade.
Our young people will build, design and decorate flower planters out of concrete, as well as wood.
In collaboration with Wayman AME Church, our students will also learn about the unique history of Wayman AME church and use that rich, unique history as design cues and references in the design and finishing of their flower planters.

We’d like to thank the staff of Park and RUSD in their support. #SentinelMentors
A few of our young Sentinels were able to participate in a college tour over Spring Break. It was an opportunity of their lives for many as this was the first opportunity they had to travel outside of Wisconsin. For many, it was also their first experience on a college campus. Youth traveled to Historically Black Colleges and Universities such as the prestigious and historic Spelman and Morehouse Colleges. In addition, other schools visited were North Carolina A & T, Clark Atlanta University and Norfolk State.
