The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Teens Run DC is looking for volunteers to help in all aspects of our program - from working with our youth directly as mentor or friend, to assisting in fundraising efforts, marketing, communications, and/or community outreach. We are a young and dynamic program, but more than a program we are building a community where everyone learns and everyone grows. Come join us.
Our Mission: Teens Run DC empowers underserved youth to build up their fitness, self-confidence, problem-solving strategies, and goal-setting skills through an integrated physical activity and social emotional learning curriculum. With a fundamental belief in caring relationships and a welcoming community as the contexts for learning and growth and a strengths-based approach to our youth, we dream of a world where all youth feel connected to their communities and themselves, and through that connection, they can learn, grow, and succeed.
