In the most recent issue of Seventeen magazine, there was an article about a new site called Get Ur Good On. This site was created by Miley Cyrus in a partnership with Youth Service America and it is a site that teenagers can join and use to share their ideas about how to make our communities and our world a better place. There are many fundraising and volunteer ideas on this site, and there is also information about how to receive government grants for the volunteer projects that you do. You can also post volunteer and fundraising events that the Neighborhood House is hosting.
To visit the site, click here. Let me know what you think!
Also, Megan is currently working on an application for the Youth Committee for the 2010-2011 school year. This committee will be a large group of teenagers from every high school in our area. The teenagers that join will be teenagers that are willing to volunteer and help the Neighborhood House in various ways. I will post the application when it is complete (probably closer to the end of summer!)
Have a good weekend, everyone!
