Chris will be honored at the Youth Heroes Breakfast on Friday, April 11, 2014!
The mission of the American Red Cross is to prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.
Volunteers make up more than 95% of the Red Cross workforce and we could not accomplish our work without them. I know that I speak for us all when I say that there would be no charitable agencies anywhere without dedicated volunteers.
A study of youth development indicates that youth volunteers are twice as likely to get better grades in school, 25% more likely to positively contribute to their family and community and twice as likely to continue their volunteer efforts as adults. Through volunteer initiatives, youth adopt mentors who lead by example, serve as a source of guidance and inspire young adults to achieve their goals with confidence.
This is why the American Red Cross is excited host the 1st Annual Youth Heroes Awards Breakfast in Statesboro at Georgia Southern University on Friday, March 7th and the 2nd Annual Youth Heroes Awards Breakfast at Savannah State University on Friday, April 11th.
During the awards breakfast, we will also honor two local community leaders, Chris Yaughn from Fostering Bulloch at the Statesboro event and Cathy Hill, Vice President of Georgia Power Coastal Georgia Region in Savannah.
