Results are showing from the class....

March 8th, 2011 at 05:09 am

I mentioned that I volunteered at a class for teens this weekend. The class is normally $150 per kid, but thanks to generous donors, we give about 90% attendence in scholarships. One of my friends has a teen daughter that attended on Sat...and she did awesome.

Tonight, my friend emailed me to tell me that her daughter set a goal this week to 'make a difference in someones life'.

Today, instead of heading off campus with her friends at lunch, she stayed at school and found a girl sitting by herself...and asked to eat lunch with her. At the end of lunch, the girl thanked her for spending time with her...she has been so lonely and really appreciated not having to eat by herself again.

Another one of the kids decided to build a stronger relationship with his sister...

another, has committed to doing her homework every night to bring her grades up...

almost 20 kids, from an 8 hour day...making small steps to change their lives and the world around them.

Sign me up anytime for this class. I am more than happy to give my time to see these kind of changes happening in our world.

Blessed. I truly am. All for free.

    Kristin- this class is called Impact-Chamber Youth Leadership. The men who started it are looking into taking it National eventually. It is a great class. Smile
