It’s Boston or Bust!
Two members from The Clubhouse in Lismore are very close to boarding a plane to the United States. Just three thousand dollars stands between them and a once in a lifetime opportunity to attend the 9th Teen Summit at Boston University in August.
At Teen Summit – held biennially since 2002 – youth leaders participate in a variety of workshops, projects and team building activities designed to build technological skills, develop project management and critical thinking, and foster international connections.
“Every two years, more than 300 young people and chaperones from Clubhouses in more than 100 countries gather in Boston,” says Deb Hall from Social Futures, which manages the Clubhouse here, “wouldn’t it be great if two of our Lismore members are among them?” This year’s theme is ‘Stand Up, Speak Out, Change the World!’ We have two very excited young candidates hoping to attend and we are so close now to being able to send them on their way.
Fleet Partners in Lismore and Alstonville Rotary Club have already contributed $1,000 each. We now urgently need $3,000 to cover the costs. If you have funds left in your end of year budget, please consider us. Donations over $2 are tax deductible.
