    Mission

    As the co-founder and former executive director of Community Solutions, Inc. (CSI), a national youth development agency based in New York City, Jeremy remains committed to raising awareness and support for its initiatives.  CSI exists to:

    History

    Community Solutions grew out of co-founder Pastor Rick Del Rio's holistic vision for community outreach and renewal. Before "faith based initiatives" were a federal initiative, Pastor Rick founded Abounding Grace Ministries in 1982 to serve the whole person -- spirit, soul, and body -- and offered a variety of social services in addition to traditional religious programming. In 1994, Rev. Del Rio and his son Jeremy, then a junior at New York University, conceived of a separate entity that would administer both non-religious and faith-based social services to address neighborhood pathologies. They incorporated CSI shortly after, but the organization remained largely conceptual until February 1996, when community residents helped define its mission and short and long-term objectives. By spring, they had adopted a comprehensive mission statement, developed an Action Plan, and elected to establish, as its first initiative, a neighborhood youth center called Generation Xcel. In 2003, CSI launched a national community service mobilzation called Chain Reaction.

    Initiatives

    Community Solutions offers three principal ministry initiatives: + Chain Reaction // Weekend and week-long, youth-led community service. + Generation Xcel // After school, summer camps, and leadership development programs. (Download Fact Sheet PDF) + Itinerant Speakers // Challenge and inspire your church, conference, college, students, or leadership with one of CSI's itinerants.

    Core

    Certain fundamental values underlie every CSI initiative.
