The ORYA is excited to announce our new Teen Leadership Team! We wanted to create a group that can get the most out of their service hours. The Teen Leadership Team will work with the Youth Association to support and create new and existing programs that will benefit our local kids, community and the volunteers themselves. This will provide our Teens with a chance to contribute in ways other volunteer experiences cannot. We intend to form an Executive Board and allow our Team members to hold real positions, allowing them to gain invaluable experience while providing them with a way to make their volunteering hours really POP off the page!
We believe our local youth will benefit from an organized volunteer program which allows them to contribute in a variety of ways, while gaining valuable skills which surpass the typical volunteer experience.
The ORYA Teen Leadership Team will plan to meet on a monthly basis to discuss programs which would benefit the local community. Opportunities to volunteer at ORYA events will present themselves regularly throughout the year.
Teenagers looking to volunteer their time to an organization that will allow them to contribute in all aspects of event and program organizing, in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. This includes such skills as planning, scheduling, budgeting, communicating, and executing.
Benefits of participating include:
- Experience working as part of a diverse team.
- Ability to creatively influence NEW and existing programs & events.
- The opportunity to hold an executive position on the Team, differentiating your college application from others!
- Positive interactions with community leaders and families.
- A steady stream of volunteering opportunities.
- Have fun while helping others enjoy things that you enjoy
Our first meeting is Sunday 9/16 @ 6PM. Come hear about this new program and meet the various Sports Directors. Register now at ORYA.ORG to be part of this awesome, new opportunity. We are also looking for a few parent volunteers who are eager to help our teens learn valuable skills while making a difference in the community!
