PILOT (Progressive Individual Leadership of Teens) is a student led program that develops a commitment to community service and volunteerism. Students are challenged to create and implement service projects within their community. Through fellowship and hard work PILOTs aims to build spirit as teens discover a deeper meaning for living that is built on compassion, leadership, and service. Designed for your 11-15 year old looking to get involved in and give back to their community, PILOTS participants will do amazing projects such as feed the homeless, planting trees, and rescuing animals. Plan, prep, implement, and celebrate is the format of every month. PILOTs will have the opportunity to partner with a variety of other nonprofits in the area.
Participant’s successes are rewarded with trips to theme parks, camp-outs, and more! As if that wasn’t enough, students can fulfill their required service hours!
Pilots includes weekly meetings, manual, shirt and discounts to some of the planned trips. School required service hours are fulfilled through the PILOTS program!
