Community Explosions

The Virginia Attorney General's Office, the faith community and the city of Hampton hosts "Community Explosions," a series of neighborhood resource gatherings. The Hampton Police Department and the city's Youth and Young Adult Opportunities Office invite service organizations and other vendors to take part in these community building events. These gatherings are meant to foster community engagement and build relationships between neighbors. These events are opportunities to raise awareness about resources available to families in the community, recruit committed volunteers, and allow concerned citizens the opportunity to directly connect with organizations that support positive outcomes for youth.

Organizations interested in participating as a vendor must provide at least one of the following: 

  1. Exhibit materials and information about your programs (information-sharing) AND/OR 
  2. Recruit volunteers to assist your program in continuing to provide valuable services to the community (community engagement).

Vendor spaces are limited to organizations that are looking to recruit volunteers and those who offer engagement opportunities. There is no fee, but spaces will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. 

For additional information about participating in Community Explosions, please email Latiesha Handie or call 757-727-2750.
