Executive Summary

Project HOPE engages individuals in community service activities, such as blood drives, and much more. Our goal is to create a new community service program and expand opportunities for our pool of volunteers, while extending our reach to new volunteers off- campus. We estimate that 250 volunteers will be utilized in year one and that this number will increase in year two.

The program will consist of a series of free disaster preparedness workshops and CPR/First Aid classes to 1,500 individuals. We will provide free emergency/first aid kits to all participants. All first responders, veterans, active military service members and their immediate families will be given priority registration. The program will include a community service component in which volunteers will promote the program, register participants, recruit other volunteers. In year two, the workshops/classes will be conducted. The area served will include Cerritos College, its service area, and surrounding community. This project will address identified community needs in areas served by CNCS-supported programs. The program recognizes that access to disaster preparedness information and CPR/First Aid training is vital to the well-being of all communities, particularly those which are predominantly minority and/or low income, because they frequently lack such information and training.
