My name is Autumn White and I am a sophomore in high school. I like to read and love to listen to music. I enjoy helping others and working with kids.
I have been selected to represent the YMCA as a member of their Global Service team. This is a community outreach program where I will be working with other volunteers to establish a youth development program at the Cape Flats YMCA in Cape Town, South Africa.
I am asking for your help. I will need to raise $3,000 to fund the cost of the trip as well as the projects we will do while we are there.
Since I was four, I have been involved with YMCA programs. From swimming lessons to soccer to summer camps, the Y has been a big part of who I am. For the past three years, I have been participating in various YMCA Leadership programs to develop the necessary skills to prepare me for college. Through my involvement with the YMCA, I’ve not only had fun, but I’ve met cool people, and gained summer besties. I am self-confident, can talk to anyone about anything, am comfortable speaking in front of large groups and facilitating activities, and I don’t mind doing things for others without self-benefit.
I’ve grown so much from my experiences with the Y and hope to pay it forward by sharing with others. Any amount is appreciated and the donations are tax-deductible.
Thank you for your support!
