Programs

Parks her husband wanted young people to get involved in community development. Different programs were developed like Pathways to Freedom which taught youth about every thing from the underground railroad to the civil rights movement. These programs also taught life skills and community interaction. Each program was a five week period that took place over the summer.

In the past years staff and leaders have participated in helping young students give their talents to organizations like the Freedom Writers. These programs have gone on in helping youth return to schools for drop-out status and getting involved in their communities

The Rosa Parks Institute has made a large donation to the Save Owasippe movement. They plan to build a base camp for "Pathways to Freedom" in Muskegon.
