WorldLegacy NC165 created an extreme makeover of Bolder Options Youth Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The remodeled Youth Center creates a space for the children to be joyful, free, and create possibilities. It was a space where children can now study, research, read, exercise, create art, and be connected. NC165 created an inviting space that was divided into different areas- homework, games, reading, TV, and arts/crafts. The project consisted of painting the youth center, installing a shelving system in the storage closet, new area rugs, tables, desks, chairs, four new computer stations with identical desktop computers, software, a new major brand 60-65” Smart TV, an L-shaped sectional, art supplies, and learning games. Budget $30,000.
