What started in 2012 with one program and 200 participants has grown to nearly 30 programs and 20,000 participants each year!
“NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF A SMALL GROUP OF COMMITTED PEOPLE TO CHANGE THE WORLD. IN FACT, IT IS THE ONLY THING THAT EVER HAS.”
PROGRAMS THAT INSPIRE YOUTH TO DO GOOD IN THE WORLD
Action Teams are groups of 10-20 students who work together to learn about community needs, the meaning of compassion, how to inspire their peers to serve their community with them, how to fundraise/advocate for causes they care about, and ultimately to lead projects that make a difference in the community.
Our annual Summer Day Camps are designed to offer students a fun and exciting opportunity to dive deep into the needs of their city. For 3-4 days, campers will volunteer at various local non-profits where they spend time working for each organization learning the work that goes into solving needs in their community.
High school age students who have the availability and desire to grow in their leadership will be invited to participate in our Student Leadership Action Team. This team will work together to plan city-wide service initiatives, participate in Generation Alive events, and receive active mentoring from the Generation Alive staff.
