Hello, my name is Stanley Hester, son of Tara Hood and Stanley Hester Sr, and I have been a part of the Summit Family YMCA Teen Leadership Club for two years. As a member of the program I interviewed and was selected to serve as an advisor for the club and have had the opportunity to visit and serve with my peers at local service organizations, such as Meals on Wheels and Bridging the Gap. Both are vital to the community that I live in.
More Recently, I was selected as one of thirty five teen leaders to be a part of the YMCA Global Service Leadership Opportunity. Through the global program other teen leaders and I will have the opportunity to fly overseas and serve with a YMCA branch in Cape Town, South Africa for approximately two weeks. This is a very exciting opportunity for me and I will be grateful for any and all donations, support and prayers.
This is a great opportunity for me to be of service to others in another country alongside my peers. My personal mission is to be a blessing by paying it forward within my community and our world by doing my best to serve the people of Cape Town and share my adventure when I return to motivate and encourage others. I truly believe that small efforts can make the biggest differences similiar to how ripples makes waves.
You can help! One person can make a difference but TOGETHER we can change the world!!
Thank you for considering my cause.
