Bolder Options

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.

WorldLegacy’s NC165 Leadership Team will complete an extreme makeover of the recreation room at Bolder Options in Minneapolis, Minnesota during the weekend of September 16 – 17, 2017 by renovating and painting an existing space and adding new, state-of-the-art computers, a television, couches, tables, area rugs, furniture and toys.  The work will be done in excellence and will serve as a lasting gift to enable Bolder Options to open up infinite possibilities for the at-risk youth they mentor. This WorldLegacy Leadership Team is committed to having these children know they are respected and honored, and that the impossible becomes possible by risking and taking a leadership role in the world.

The adventure will begin on Friday, September 15 at noon and 8:00 a.m. both Saturday and Sunday.  All renovations will be completed by Sunday afternoon and will culminate with a ribbon cutting ceremony beginning at 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 17.  The ceremony will celebrate and honor all donors, volunteers and leaders who gave of their time, talents and resources to make the project a success.  WorldLegacy invites the entire Minneapolis community and all those who work and volunteer for this incredible organization to come join us.
