Help me raise funds for Teens In Public Service (TIPS)!
This summer, I am interning at a nonprofit organization thanks to TIPS, a not-for-profit with a mission to develop future leaders dedicated to their community.
As a 501c3 organization, TIPS relies on the support of community donors to provide internship opportunities to 60+ teens interested in giving back through public service work.
Please contribute whatever you can to help my fellow interns and I raise $5k to fund one one more summer internship position so that more teens can access the TIPS internship program in 2020!
This summer, I have spent my time interning at a place called Tavon Learning Center. Tavon is a space for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities to continue their education and learn crucial life skills through functional academics, recreation and improve their daily living skills.
The gap between high school and adult life with those who have disabilities is often one that draws little attention- when in reality,-it affects millions of adults in our nation. Tavon provides a space for adults with autism, down syndrome, cerebral palsy, and much more to grow and learn. Many Tavon members eventually move on to go to the workforce, something largely made possible by the incredible work done there. Members learn to expand their social and functional skills and the program drastically enriches so many lives.
At Tavon, I get to teach the members new things everyday and watch them grow and learn. Not only do I get to spend time with the lovely people there, I also get to help with the company's website, social media, posters and flyers for events as well as creating a promotional video for them.
Tavon is an integral part of many people’s lives and being able to intern there has taught me so much about patience, compassion and empathy. Being able to help these people has been one of the most humbling and amazing experiences I’ve ever had.
The TIPS program enables 60 kids each year to create a beautiful lasting impact at various non-profits every summer and your small contribution would be very appreciated and goes towards a very important cause.
Thank you so much, I genuinely value your support.
Please contact me or TIPS Program Director, Maddie (firstname.lastname@example.org), if you have any questions about the summer internship program or Tavon.
