From starting out as a Buddy Reading volunteer to being an Advocate and project leader, I have impacted the lives of children from low-income families to have a better quality of life.
The Advocates Leadership Team
The Advocates Leadership Team is a group of passionate and dedicated Kids4kids volunteers chosen each year from local and international secondary schools to work together on community projects. The team provides students with the opportunity to develop their organizational, planning and leadership skills, while learning to manage projects from their conception and execution to impact measurement and reflection. The team is responsible for organizing Kids4Kids events including the annual ‘Sharing for a Cause’ collection drive each May, the ‘Powered by Youth’ leadership forum and other events throughout the year. Since 2010, there have been over 100 advocates. Take a look at who's on the Advocates Leadership Team 2016-17!
