Teen Volunteer In Action chapter to hold fall kick-off event

For the TVIA-SD2 (Teen Volunteer In Action) fall kick-off event this year, the organization of 179 boys will be volunteering in a hands-on philanthropic event by building beehives for a group, Via International/Los Niños, in Mexico. Please join them for a fun afternoon and learn how TVIA is a fast growing non-profit group in San Diego, dedicated to offering teen boys and their families the opportunity for personal growth through philanthropy.

The event will be held on Sunday, Sept. 9, from 3-5 p.m. at Sage Canyon Elementary School (5290 Harvest Run Drive, San Diego, 92130).

Via International/Los Niños is a non-profit service organization dedicated to improving the quality of life by creating opportunities for children and their families to realize their human potential through participation in the development of their communities.

Teen Volunteers in Action (TVIA) is a truly unique opportunity for young men to reach out to the community. It is comprised of 30 members per class in grades 7–12. Established in 2000 as a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit, its mission meets an under-served need to introduce teenage sons to community service and leadership on a local level; moreover, the parent-run advisement board provides wonderful opportunities for continued work and interaction with teenage sons.
