Lassiter Unicef is a service club that is a proud branch of UNICEF USA, a national committee for the United Nations program, UNICEF. Our mission as a collaboration is to educate, advocate, and donate in the name of helping children everywhere.
Our group hosts regular meetings for its members to promote education on prominent topics and issues of our society today. We take all aspects of real-world concerns into consideration by organizing guest speakers, simulators for realistic scenarios, and other activities. We have had actual Unicef workers come to our school to talk about their experiences and hardships, which not only enlightened the team, but also provided perceptive motivation on continuing our previously stated vocation. This was done through a collaboration with Lassiter HOSA. (lassiterhosa.my-free.website)We work with a wide range of people to plan many different activities. By arranging illustrative activities, it really impacts our members.
In the field of advocacy, we do letter-writing and other events like “phone-a-thons” to communicate to our government leaders on problems in our world, and oftentimes how support towards UNICEF can help solve them. Our club helps advocate for any type of child in any type of place, no matter what type of problem.
Finally, Unicef Club helps fundraise on behalf of UNICEF USA. This is where our big events come in, where we raise money to go directly to saving children’s lives around the world. This is how we directly impact the lives of kids and mothers in need.
Through these three approaches, we have been successful in promoting UNICEF, UNICEF USA, Lassiter High School, and our proud mission statement.
