  • Income: Promoting financial stability and independence

Become a Volunteer:

Being a volunteer is far more than attending a group activity once every few months. Volunteers can participate in a variety of programs that range in focus, age group, and meeting times. There is no experience needed and you will be able to make a difference in the life of a young person. After you register with a program, all you need to bring is you! The United Way is a connector organization, which means we connect nonprofit agencies with people willing to fill their positions as volunteers. These opportunities can be as little as one day of service or as much as a regular, ongoing service position. The time commitment is up to the volunteer and can be matched with each agency for a perfect fit. Call 801 - 399 - 5584 for information.

Be a Welcome Baby Volunteer:

Welcome Baby is a home visitation program. We train volunteers to visit new parents in our community. During their monthly visit the volunteer shares parenting engagement activities, parenting tips and a developmental checklist. A commitment of at least 6 months is asked of our volunteers. Volunteers can decide how much time per month they are able to donate and set their own schedule. We also ask volunteers to attend at least one in-service training per quarter. In-service is a great way for volunteers to enhance their home-visitation experience and the information they can bring to families.

We look for volunteers that have experience working with children and families especially experienced mothers. We have a high need for volunteers that speak Spanish. Become a Welcome Baby volunteer home visitor and enjoy the fulfillment of strengthening families in your community. Have fun interacting with parents and their new babies, bringing new information and activities while sharing insights from your personal experience.

Project Success Coalition Inc. Betty Sawyer
801-644-1402
projectsuccessinc1@gmail.com

Project Success, is a grassroots, not-for-profit, Community Learning Center, located in the heart of Ogden. Our motto is “Keeping Hope Alive” and we work with youth and families to help keep dreams alive and imagine a world where they contribute and participate in its positive growth and prosperity.  We do so by opening doors of opportunity to celebrate arts and culture, support and celebrate academic foundations, and promote health and wellness.

Project Success began as a response a to “Community Call to Action” to address the drug arrest and use and associated criminal activity in Ogden’s inner city. Betty Sawyer, along with the late Reverend Leander Coates, invited residents to a Town Hall Meeting at the Marshall White Community Center.  Over 100 residents, along with representatives from the Ogden NAACP, local congregations, sororities, and other civic groups, and Hill Air Force Base, came together to look at community challenges and community assets. Participants identified a lack of opportunities for youth and a lack of jobs, police issues, and limited activities for out-0f-school time, to name a few.  Everyone agreed to work together and make a difference in their neighborhoods, one brick at a time. There was not an organization at the time to fulfill this mission, so Project Success was born!  The name itself, was birthed through one of our local youth, citing PS for Post Script, meaning the “story isn’t over and there’s more to come”.   That was our sentiment exactly.  We weren’t ready to give on our inner city and the youth and families that reside there.  Project Success provided one of the first after-school programs in Ogden and has provided continuous services since it’s inception in 1989.
