C4G has AMAZING teen volunteers! So, we had to find an amazing way to thank them. Kari Fuhrmann, Staff Assistant in the University of Tampa's Communication Department, with help from UT student Anna S. Higgins (C4G volunteers themselves), have been leading our teen volunteers in a special workshop designed just for them.
Each Friday of our Summer Camp, our dedicated teen volunteers are excused from camp duties to take part in a two-hour class designed just for them. Each class, they learn about getting into college ("How do I apply for Financial Aid?", "How important is the College Entrance Essay?"), they participate in a Creative Writing workshop ("What are some good interviewing techniques?"), and they engage in our newly developing Girls GLOW initiative ("What would you tell your 12-year-old self about peer pressure?").
Oh, and the meetings are held in our soon-to-be-redesigned TECO Energy Conference Room and Teen Lounge!
