As a person who helps out with grant writing, I have the wonderful opportunity to work with dedicated staff who have made it their lives to break the cycle of teen pregnancy and its associated problems. This is one of the best experiences I have ever had as a volunteer with a nonprofit organization. I also have had the great pleasure of getting to know some of the some young women who are recipients of the mentoring services of the organization. I have seen: Marriages have been restored, family relationships rekindled, personal goals pursued with fervor, etc. The bulk of this work is accomplished through the efforts of a network of volunteers. This experience for me has been a testament to the resilience of the human spirit. With unconditional love and unwavering support, most problems faced by youth today can be solved. A commitment of as little as 1-2 hours per week that make a difference in a teengers life.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
help teen mothers focus on their personal goals to become self actualized individuals who would break the generational cycle of poverty and its associated problems.
