WELCOME TO THE ARMORY PROJECT

The time has come to satisfy a long-term need for the youth of our community. They are the future leaders of our civic, professsional, retail, and educational forces, and we must act now to invest our time, money, and talents in training them to fulfill their impending positions in society. The future of Mansfield depends on them...and us!

The Armory Project is a multi-purpose enrichment center designed to provide a new sense of hope and opportunity to the youths of Richland County and surrounding areas. Through a variety of mentoring programs we will offer and provide assistance to our youths who are in need of help to handle the daily challenges in their lives. We provide assistance in leadership, education, recreation, and social service programs.

With God's help, The Armory Project is here to create an unstoppable and positive force with our community.

RECLAIMING OUR YOUTH
The Armory Project is conducting a community development project entitled MISSION: "Take Back" as part of its youth outreach program. The Armory Project is headquartered at the recently acquired property that once housed the Ohio National Guard at 140 Ashland Road. This huge facility will be dedicated to helping today's youth acheive the skills, knowledge, and moral standards needed to ensure a bright future for the Mansfield area.

MENTORING THROUGH SHARING
In order to arm and equip our youth with skills and knowledge they will need to face the challenges of tomorrow, who can better provide them with these tools than those who possess them now? Through mentoring and training programs, The Armory Project will combine People of Wisdom with the Spark of Youth to create an environment of learning that will pass the torch forward.

By encouraging our seniors to share methods and information of what has worked in the past, and helping our young people combine those qualities with current technologies and education, we can successfully create an UNSTOPPABLE FORCE that is destined to help today's youth succeed in business, finance, and social interactions. This will ultimately brighten the future of everyone who lives, works, and plays in Mansfield.

EVERY DOLLAR HELPS ~ TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

The Armory Project is going to take a lot of money to complete, and we cannot do it without your generosity. This is a community project that is going to need the support of the community it serves. The cost to revamp the building and make it ready to welcome the kids and adults who will come to participate in the many activities that are planned is expected to be more than a half-million dollars. This will come in the form of grants, gifts, fundraisers, and donations from people just like you. If you can give just a little, it will help a whole lot, and it will be deeply appreciated by not only those who are working hard to make this vision a reality, but by those who will gain from what this facility has to offer.
