Amanda Kondolojy, Sheri Lewin – Teen Volunteer PlugIns

Date grant awarded: January 9, 2018

Thrive Clermont‘s Teen Volunteer PlugIns is a year-long program that aims to connect teens to their community and increase feelings of self esteem and self worth through volunteerism. The program begins with a half-day volunteer training program (offered quarterly), which will help teens discover what it means to be a volunteer, uncover their natural skills and abilities, and gives them the chance to meet with local organizations that share their beliefs and goals.

Once teens have been trained and matched with an organization, they will then be able to volunteer at regular intervals, developing essential job skills and making lasting connections along the way.
