Devereux Kids Making a Difference in Sulphur Springs

(Florida)

Devereux Kids and Sulphur SpringsThough the Tampa Bay neighborhood of Sulphur Springs faces many challenges, it boasts a group of talented, enthusiastic young people determined to improve their community. And thanks to Devereux Kids, they receive much needed support through its award-winning Sulphur Springs Project. The project and its advocacy group, Youth Spring Into Action (YSIA), were founded to engage and develop the leadership ability of neighborhood youth.  Funded by private donors and foundations, the Sulphur Springs Project provides leadership development opportunities through community service, educational, cultural and recreational activities.  For example, YSIA members traveled to Tallahassee last April to attend workshops and tours as part of the annual Children’s Week. The program’s success recently was recognized with the Hillsborough County Neighborhood Recognition Award for the Most Successful Youth Program (see photo).
