MISSION VIEJO, California (PRWEB) October 21, 2015
Lion’s Heart, a nationwide volunteer platform for 6th – 12th grade students, reports a record-setting 41-percent increase in Membership following the close of its 2015 enrollment period. With nearly 1,400 new Members, the organization now has 2,888 teens enrolled in 237 groups across 47 states across the country. Lion’s Heart helps teens develop meaningful life skills through leadership opportunities and philanthropic experiences.
“What started as a locally-based organization has grown into a significant nation-wide presence,” said Terry Corwin, Executive Director and Founder of Lion’s Heart. “I couldn’t be more thrilled to expand the reach of this organization and continue to provide teens with the resources to serve the community in ways that are meaningful to them.”
Lion’s Heart organizes Members into groups so they can volunteer for various non-profit and philanthropic organizations in their communities. Each group of teen Members elect their own officers and runs their own meetings. With this structure, Members have the power to choose how they want to serve their communities. Additionally, Lion’s Heart Members do not participate in fundraising. This ensures that all time and energy are spent serving the community.
