Lastly, I've been doing some long term substitute teaching at a local High School. I've been struck by how many teenagers live in group homes in our community.
My daughters are doing some fundraising for their High School class - they are effective fundraisers but lack the knowledge of where those gifts would be most appreciated and where they would serve the most benefit. I'm thinking of suggesting they do something to motivate their peers and possibly other student councils at other High Schools. Doing something for their fellow young people - but that would probably involve founding some sort of service group, Fairbanks Youth Service League or something. I'm a bit reluctant to start something, but I can see it being effective on social media. This one probably has the steepest approach and obviously some of the details are still murky to me. It has great potential, however.
I look forward to any thoughts or suggestions anyone may have.
