‘Tis the Season: How FLVS Students Give Back
‘Tis the season for giving back—and FLVS Full Time National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) understood the assignment! In honor of International Volunteers Day on December 5, we’re proud to highlight FLVS students helping their local communities.
Gabriel, 8th Grade
What’s the first step of emergency preparedness? Always be prepared. As a mentor with his local Youth Emergency Team (YET), Gabriel teaches kids and teens crucial skills to take action when emergencies happen, addressing topics such as CPR, search and rescue, and stress management.
Keep up the great work, Gabriel!
Maria, 8th Grade
When it comes to ending hunger, Maria knows she CAN make a difference – organizing canned food drives in her local community and donating all the food she collects to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. Every can donated helps feed families in need.
Way to go, Maria!
Makayla, 8th Grade
Sometimes we need a helping hand – to start a new life. And Makayla and her FLVS teacher Sheila Stark are showing up to do their part. Every month they volunteer at the New Life Warehouse, a non-profit dedicated to helping families get back on their feet after difficult times. By sorting through donations and delivering items throughout their community, Makayla and Mrs. Stark are helping families start off on the right foot.
Well done, ladies!
