This month the Office for Safe and Healthy Neighborhoods (OSHN) is hosting two events (9/23/23 and 9/26/23) that are free and a great way to get involved.
The One Love Louisville Ambassador Training is a free, in-person training scheduled for September 23rd, 2023. Based off our current lineup of presenters, we will meet from 9:00am-2:00pm at Refuge In Kentucky Church, located at 1716 Prentice Street, 40210, and lunch will be served. We will hear from experts as they cover a range of topics including Firearm Safety, Question Persuade Refer (QPR), Stop the Bleed, and The Public Health Approach to Violence. This training, which has been attended by over 900 people since its inception in 2017, aims to inform participants of individual and collective efforts to reduce violence in Louisville. For many of our participants, this is a gateway to get involved with our office, and our wonderful partner organizations working to curb violence in our community. If you have ever wanted to get plugged in to this work, the Ambassador Training is a great place to start. Click Here To Register. The flyer with the QR code is also attached.

The CSYA Team has committed to participating in a Monthly Community Outreach. The CSYA mission is to bring transformational change for young adults. We believe in a collective approach to bring this mission to life. This month we decided to volunteer at St. Vincent De Paul to feed those in need a free meal with the Office of Safe & Healthy Neighborhoods. We, alongside other volunteers helped serve a hot dinner to over 200 people in need.
If you are in need of volunteers for anything please email our Director of Development, Breanna Carter: BCarter@CSYALouisville.org

You have the right to enroll in public education until age 21 or you earn a diploma.
There are many ways to earn a high school credential and prepare for college or a career. The most common path is to attend a four-year public high school. However, there are other ways for students who want to graduate in less than four years, who have fallen behind on credits, or want to pair their education with job training or employment. In this guide, learn about the different pathways to high school and beyond.
