Volunteer Opportunity: Moose Youth Awareness Program

posted Oct 1, 2019, 8:01 AM by Nadine Mach

The Moose Youth Awareness Program is for Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors that show leadership skills and want to become involved in their communities. Plan now to attend a Moose Youth Awareness Student Congress in your area to become involved in this important program. The objective of the Student Congress is to help students to design, share ideas and solutions in developing and preparing presentations we call KIDS TALKS. These presentations are taken into elementary schools, pre-schools or other organizations that teach 4-9 year olds. We target this age group to hopefully plant positive seeds on topics of self-esteem, alcohol and tobacco abuse, violence, and respect for each other. If you become knowledgeable and involved in our program, YOU will be a part of helping our future generation make wise choices for their lives. There will be no expense to you or your family. The Moose Lodges and Women of the Moose Chapters in your area represent the students who attend the Student Congress by paying the registration fee, providing transportation, locating groups to make presentations, and helping with supplies to do interesting and informative KIDS TALKS.
