We’re kicking off our first High School Teen Advisory Board (TAB) this fall. We’ll have monthly meetings and learn about non-profit management, local homelessness, leadership, philanthropy, and volunteer service. Our TAB will participate in Homeless Awareness Week, lead a group service project, serve a meal at the shelter, and serve as a Homecoming 4 Homeless Ambassador. We expect participants for this leadership experience will make new friends, gain valuable skills and insight into the non-profit sector, and choose to write about their experience in compelling college entrance essays.
- Attendance at meetings, generally held on Sunday at 2 pm at The Samaritan Inn, located in McKinney, Texas. A 75% attendance rate is required for completion of this program.
- Payment of $50 per selected teen will cover costs of t-shirts, food, and materials and is considered a donation to The Samaritan Inn.
- 2 letters of recommendation from people who are not related to you and know your work habits, character, or interests. Teachers, faith leaders, employers, or mentors make great references.
