Nov. 27 is #GivingTuesday and this year, we are raising money for the Ilene Blau Teen Leadership Institute, which teaches teens leadership skills through monthly workshops, team-building excursions and community service projects. Our goal is to raise $2,000 for the program on #GivingTuesday.
Today’s donations will go toward scholarships for the Ilene Blau Teen Leadership Institute Weekend Retreat, to be held in Flagstaff in April 2019, where teens will participate in leadership sessions, fun activities and community service.
