**This Teens In Action group is open to all 6th-8th graders. After our first meeting, participants will be split into 2 groups (Firestarters and Teens Ignited) as we identify compatible goals and interests.
A mainstay of Camp Fire's service and leadership programs, Teens In Action is all about teens working together to make their community a better place. Moreover, members explore what matters to them, challenge themselves, and take on leadership roles to achieve their goals. This program is built on Camp Fire’s long-standing belief that youth are part of the solution to, and not the problem with, today’s social and environmental issues.
Teens in Action is a scaffolded program based on both age and past volunteer experience to support youth through the process of becoming active change agents in their communities.
- Firestarters are introduced to what it means to be a volunteer for the causes they support.
- Teens Ignited take on more leadership in setting up and implementing their service projects.
- Teens on Fire are just that! They plan and implement all projects and explore what it means to be a true champion for a cause.
