TVIA-SD2 holds Annual Kick-Off Event
The SD2 Chapter of Teen Volunteers in Action held its annual kick-off event on Aug. 30 at the Carmel Valley Boys & Girls Club.
TVIA-SD2 is a group of 180 teens and parents committed to developing community leaders through volunteering, philanthropic work, and personal development. The kick-off event marks the start of a new year supporting San Diego area philanthropies. As part of the kick-off event, the boys participated in six different break-out sessions, which included CPR and AED training with San Diego Project Heartbeat; speaking with Eric McElvenny from Challenged Athletes Foundation; making blankets for animals at Helen Woodward Animal Center; creating worm casings for Solana Center for Environmental Innovation; assembling hygiene and food bags for homeless shelters; and participating in an experiential disability exercise with Trent Tracy, P.E. teacher at Sage Canyon Elementary.
