Hello Friends of Revolution Teen Center!
As 2019 closes, we’d like to take a moment to thank each of you and to reflect on all of the wonderful things that we have had the honor to take part in during the year.
This year, seventy-eight students and twenty volunteers took part in our activities and programs. We are incredibly thankful for our students and volunteers. What a blessing it has been to be a part of the students’ and volunteers’ lives!
Our volunteers and students have had an amazing year enjoying our Friday Night Events. The students really enjoyed Karaoke Open Mic, Game Night, Trivia Night, Bowling, Roller Skating, and the Silent Disco Dance Party. In addition to participating in loads of fun events and programs, our students gave up their time to serve patients at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta alongside Canvases for a Cause.
In July, our Board made the decision to move out of our facility so we could focus on making a greater impact with our Friday Night Events and provide programs at Give Center East. Our partnership with Give has been a great success and Dr. Brandon Bell, Principal of Give Center East, has agreed to allow us to double our time at Give in 2020! TRU Girl Talk was a BIG HIT. We had six dedicated volunteers encouraging thirty young women. The girls had the opportunity to be heard, learn positive communication, and conflict resolution skills. The girls inspired us as we watched them grow!
Our Warrior Volunteers also had the honor to share awareness of teen issues and our passion for helping the next generation at our first Ladies Fundraiser, which was held at the Windermere Gold Club on September 25th. The food was fabulous, and Windermere Golf Club served us well!
We’d like to give a huge shout out to The Fountain for opening their doors to us! The Fountain has offered their youth facility for some of our Friday Night Events. Thank you, Mike McGuire and Grant Adams for sharing our vision!
Before we close the year, we would love to celebrate with you. Do you have a student who has been impacted through the dedication of one of our Warrior Volunteers? We would love to hear from you! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and share your story.
Do you have a student who would like to join us? Would you be interested in joining our team? Connect with us at www.revolutionteencenter.org, on Instagram @revolutionteencenter, and on Facebook @revolutionteencenter.
As we look forward into 2020, we are in awe of the tremendous road ahead. Gwinnett County continues to have a great need for caring adults who are ready to pour into the next generation. The need is great, and the laborers are few, will you join us as we invest in today’s youth for tomorrow’s future?
None of this would have been possible without the financial and prayer partnership of our Revolution family. You are our family! SO, THANK YOU!
You may partner with us by making a one-time donation or becoming a monthly donor, as well as becoming a Warrior Volunteer or Prayer Warrior. Our greatest need at this time is more volunteers. In order to extend our reach into the community and ensure our programs are the most impactful they can be quality volunteers are a must have.
