What does it mean to partner with Teen Leadership Corps?
As the Teen Leadership Corps program continues to grow, the need for community partners continues to grow. Our community partners understand that formalized service leadership training promotes character, responsibility, and citizenship that fills a significant gap in our educational system.
Our Community partners help to offer guidance to our program, offer community-based service opportunities for our students and support the overall mission of Teen Leadership Corps.
Teen Leadership Corps would like to thank our Community Partners.
Our mission is to give hope and joy to anyone that needs a little courage. Our capes symbolize strength, power, bravery, and so much more! We help boys and girls going through scary situations transform into self-confident children that feel they can conquer whatever obstacles they face. From newborns in the NICU to teenagers struggling with depression or battling cancer, we want all children to realize how strong and brave they are.
More than 10 million kids enter a children’s hospital like University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital across North America every year. To provide the best care for kids, children’s hospitals rely on donations and community support, as Medicaid and insurance programs do not fully cover the cost of care. Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has helped fill those funding gaps by raising more than $7 billion, most of it $1 at a time through Miracle Balloon icon campaigns. Its various fundraising partners and programs support the nonprofit’s mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
We provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly created by volunteer “blanketeers.”
We provide a rewarding and fun service opportunity for interested individuals and groups in local communities, for the benefit of children.
