Cradles to Crayons
The TLC Program is a unique program that provides middle and high school students with the opportunity to serve as ambassadors for Cradles to Cradles, developing their leadership skills in the areas of community organizing and volunteer service. Students commit to completing approximately 25 hours per session and are required to complete the following components of the program:
• Assisting staff in The Giving Factory during volunteer shifts
• Spreading awareness about the C2C mission by hosting a product collection drive or fundraiser
• Participating in training and leadership development workshops in order to understand their roles and impact as service leaders
In the Spring Session 2015 forty-five Teen Leaders have the goal of collecting over 500 bags of clothing, toys, books, and other donations and raising over $4,000 for local children in need of essential items in Massachusetts through independent collections and fundraisers. We expect them to surpass those goals as the session closes at the beginning of June. Help us support these young leaders who support those most vulnerable in their communities! Kids helping kids!
