NGAGE Fall Service Project

November 2, 2012

What better way to spend a fall afternoon than to volunteer?  Just ask the high school students who participated in the NGAGE: Next Generation Actively Gaining Experience fall service project last week.  We had a great time teaming up with Clean the World Foundation and sorted two pallets of donated toiletries from local hotels that will be sanitized and recycled into hygiene kits that are distributed around the globe.  These high school volunteers are awesome workers!

NGAGE: Next Generation Actively Gaining Experience is an initiative of United Way of Southern Nevada’s Volunteer Center that encourages and recognizes high school volunteerism.  Students from around Southern Nevada track their volunteer hours to be honored at our annual recognition ceremony in April.  Students who volunteer 100 hours each year receive special recognition, and seniors who complete 100 hours can earn a community service graduation cord.  For more information about NGAGE or to get involved, check out the Volunteer Center website or contact Blythe Cherney at blythec@uwsn.org.
