VOLUNTEER GRANDKIDS and CLOSE2HEART
Two simple and fulfilling community-service programs for
teens 14 to 19–Both meet scholarship requirements.
Increasingly, good grades and high test scores are not enough for you to win college scholarships. Voluntary community service has also become a requirement – in some cases, as much as 150 hours or more. There are even community service requirements for IB (International Baccalaureate) diplomas.
|Two new community service programs – Volunteer Grandkids and Close2Heart – are tailor-made for the hectic schedules and natural abilities of high school teens like you. In addition, they give you training in valuable new skills such as Social Conversation, an ability that not only is needed for the programs, but also helps you with college interviews… job interviews… development of management skills…and making new friends.|
|Volunteer Grand Kids – For a period of 2 to 2-1/2 months, you will be a voluntary “Grand Kid” to an adopted “Grand Parent”. We give you special advanced training so you’ll know exactly what to say and how to say it. At the end of the program, you prepare a short biographical journal with highlights of the most cherished memories of your adopted GrandParent. We teach you how to do that. At a special ceremony, you will give the memory book to your GrandParent at a social gathering.|
|Close2Heart – Close2Heart is similar to Volunteer Grand Kids, except that you interact with hospice patients who are terminally ill. Therefore, you have to pack your questions into just one or two visits before preparing a biographical memory book for them to give to their family. Even though the visits are short, they have a huge impact the patient and tremendous emotional rewards for YOU.|
