My Favorite Swift Memories!
I LOVE SWIFT
There is truly nothing that I love more than seeing the direct impact I can make on such deserving children. I am so lucky to be such a big part of this organization and will cherish it forever.
Being a part of Team Swift gave me an opportunity to not only see what makes Swift, but also taught me valuable lessons on how to be a better volunteer. I was able to campaign with Team Swift, where we raised over $15,000 for the Swift Youth Foundation!! I also made awesome friendships along the way:)
Camp Swift always encourages the campers to get outside and appreciate nature and all it has to offer! Swift is amazing at teaching values to the campers while they can also have fun!
The girls always love to play dress up and take pictures at the photo booth!!
The campers always love when they have the option to choose their own activity during camp! They always have fun messing with their counselors. :)
Hearing my campers tell me they want to be just like me when they grow up is so rewarding. I'm so lucky to act as a role model for so many kids!
Being silly and having fun with my campers is my favorite part about camp.
Why I Fundraise for Swift
Hi! Thank you for visiting my page and thank you for making a donation to the Swift Youth Foundation! If you are hearing about Swift for the first time, welcome! At Swift Youth Foundation we focus on creating the path from present to potential through peer mentor relationships. For decades, we’ve been able to facilitate meaningful peer mentor relationships between youth and teens through our weekly after school programs, monthly Swift Saturday programs, and at our Camp Swift overnight camp each summer. In recent years, we’ve added additional programs for teen leadership development at both the middle school and high school levels – thus enabling us to expand and deepen our impact in the community.
Swift has been a huge part of my life for almost six years. I have made countless friendships, memories, and have learned so much from the amazing experience that is Camp Swift. Not only does Swift provide these children with the opportunity to attend a sleep-away camp at no cost, but throughout the school year, there are after-school programs, Swift Saturday's, and even the Swift Carnival. Swift Youth Foundation has been a rock for everybody involved, including past and current volunteers, and of course the kids. I am forever grateful that I am able to be such a big part of this foundation. I appreciate you and your generosity in making Swift Youth Foundation what it is today.
