Join 15 Camden County Teens Who Love To Volunteer

Quixote Quest - A Center For Family Services Program

Sept. 11, 2018, midnight - June 1, 2019, midnight

QQ could be one of the very best things that you ever do in high school. Yes...Quixote Quest does help high school aged teens from South Jersey & Philly find meaningful volunteer service. And yes...some of those opportunities are only open to the members of the QQ Qrew. The 80 Quixote Quest teens participating in the 2018-2019 school year will join an 16 year tradition and a long line of over 500 teen volunteers who have really made a difference through weekly volunteering. This September 2018, the Camden County Chapter of QQ will bring together 15 teens from many Camden County high schools that are committed to changing lives of those in need through weekly volunteering during their school year. The teens that answer the call are special and very hard to find. They are people who are not just interested in "volunteering" but take it to a different level where they commit to change the direction of a life or the quality of a life. It requires sacrifice to make a difference in a life. Is that you? In the past members of our Qrew have helped disadvantaged children break the cycle of poverty, or improve the quality of life for young people with disabilities, or lessen the loneliness for senior citizens with memory challenges, or help secure food for Camden children who are food insecure on weekends. These are serious causes that require serious dedication. Is that you?Contact us and we will be in touch immediately.

Global Climate Strike (September 20)

Fridays for Future

Sept. 19, 2019, 8 p.m. - Sept. 27, 2019, 7:59 p.m.

To date, young people have led the climate strikes around the world. Now we need adults to join us too. On September 20, 2019, Fridays for Future, the Youth Climate Strike movements, and all of our international friends and allies call for a global general strike. Mark and add it to your calendar. Workers everywhere, please: we are asking you to join us and walk away from a system that is destroying our planet and will threaten the survival of millions of people, plants, and animals within the next 10, 20, 30 years. We don’t feel like we have a choice: it’s been years of talking, countless negotiations, empty deals on climate change and fossil fuel companies being given free rides to drill beneath our soils and burn away our futures for their profit. Politicians and fossil fuel companies have known about climate change for decades. They have willingly handed over their responsibility for our future to profiteers whose search for quick cash threatens our very existence. This crisis is very real, and it cannot be ignored any longer. We have learned that if we don’t start acting for our future, nobody else will make the first move. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. Once again our voices are being heard on the streets, but it is not just up to us. We feel a lot of adults haven’t quite understood that we young people won’t hold off the climate crisis ourselves. Sorry if this is inconvenient for you. But this is not a single-generation job. It’s humanity’s job. We young people can contribute to a larger fight and that can make a huge difference. We can't do this with you and everyone you know. So this is our invitation. Starting on Friday, September 20 we will kickstart a week of climate action with a worldwide strike for the climate. We’re asking adults to step up alongside us. There are many different plans under way in different parts of the world for adults to join together and step up and out of your comfort zone for our climate. Let’s all join together, with your neighbours, co-workers, friends, family and go out on to the streets to make your voices heard and make this a turning point in our history. During the French revolution mothers flooded the streets for their children. Today we children are fighting for ourselves, but so many of our parents are busy discussing whether our grades are good, or a new diet or what happened in the Game of Thrones finale – while the planet burns. This moment has to happen. Last year’s UN intergovernmental panel on climate change’s special report on global warming was clear about the unprecedented dangers of going beyond 1.5C of global heating. Emissions must drop rapidly – so that by the time we are in our mid- and late-20s we are living in a completely transformed world. But to change everything, we need everyone. It is time for all of us to unleash mass resistance – we have shown that collective action does work. We need to escalate the pressure to make sure that change happens, and we must escalate together. So this is our chance – join us on climate strike this September. People have risen up before to demand action and make change; if we do so in numbers we have a chance. If we care, we must do more than say we do. We must act. This won’t be the last day we need to take to the streets, but it will be a new beginning. We’re counting on you. #FridaysForFuture #ClimateStrike

Brightest Gets Out the Vote for 2020 (PA)

Brightest

June 30, 2020, 9 a.m. - Nov. 3, 2020, 6 p.m.

It's not too soon to start working toward 2020. In 2018, we came all came together and flipped the House to bring accountability back to Congress and Washington, DC. But our work is not done: Trump is still in office, the threat of climate change is more imminent than ever before, and attacks on our rights, healthcare, pay-checks, schools, and families continue to be led by billionaires and fossil fuel companies. If 2018 was about flipping the House, then 2020 needs to be about flipping everything. So we can push corruption and big money out of politics for good - then fix the laws once and for all. And we've got a plan to do it, starting now. It's not too soon, and we know for a fact Republicans and corporate special interests are already out working to undermine voting rights. We have to fight back and keep our country moving forward. Because of its central, critical role as one of the three states likely to decide the 2020 election, Pennsylvania must be flipped blue in 2020. To get involved in our campaign to make that happen, please sign up or get in touch and we'll fill you in on our strategy and next steps. Whatever your schedule availability, experience, and commitment level may be, there's a role for you that can make a major difference in creating a better future for each other and the people who matter most. If you live in PA and would like to register to vote (or help register other voters), there are several ways to do that: 1. Download an official PA voter registration form, fill it out, and mail it in 2. Visit Brightest votes and register to vote online
