FBB’s Child Welfare beneficiary promotes youth serviceBy Administrator
generationOn, our Child Welfare beneficiary for Q1, partnered with the PS 57 James Weldon Johnson School in East Harlem on Martin Luther King Day to engage youth and family volunteers in a day of service that bridges social, economic and cultural differences and illuminates the actions that all people can take to help create King’s “beloved community.”
Over 500 youth and family volunteers attended the event at PS 57, including New York City Schools Chancellor Cathie Black, who spoke to the young volunteers about the importance of helping others and giving back.
Over 21 project and activity stations were set up throughout the school with 39 nonprofit partners participating as volunteer leaders. More than 26,000 items were created and donated back to the community.
With service learning and volunteer action at its core, generationOn is a global youth service movement mobilizing children to solve real world problems through community service.
