Selected by Liz Mishreki: Campfire USA - Orange County Council - www.campfiresuaoc.org
To build caring, confident youth and future leaders through co-ed programs that strenghten the individual, the family, and the community. I get to be a member of the Board of Directors, and I'm an alum, too.
I was a Blue Bird in second grade. Today, the Orange County Council serves both boys and girls. One of our key programs is Special Sitters, where we train teens to care for children of special needs such as mental and physical disabilities, and autism. We partner with United Cerebral Palsy who in turn matches these trained teens with Orange County families of special needs children and their siblings. Teens receive CPR training, basic first aid, and learn to communicate and play with children of varying abilities. Special Sitters earn pay for their babysitting services.
Thank you for this, Liz:
