Youth Leader Aaron Badida – Catalyst for Change

In the days preceding Global Youth Service Day, we’ve called on some our Youth Leadership Council to share about themselves and their thoughts on volunteering.

Aaron Badida is an 18-year old senior at Stanton College Preparatory School.  He has been involved in various community service programs including volunteering at the Museum of Science and History and outreach through Celebration Church at MetroKids Konnection.

Aaron is an alumnus of the Youth Leadership Jacksonville Class XXI and involved in numerous academic honor societies.  He is the president and founder of the Stanton Chapter of the National English Honor Society.  He loves serving at Celebration Church and being active in his faith community.

Aaron has been on the HOJ Youth Council for 2 years and participated in Global Youth Service Day projects including the Best Buddies’ Walk and this year’s first ever HandsOn For Hope:  Family Fun Fest for children and families affected by cancer.  To learn more about these projects and how you can help, visit handsonjacksonville.org/teens.

Aaron hopes that as a volunteer, he can show people how easy it is to give hope to others.  Says Aaron, “In a world where we are constantly aware of so many problems, serving faithfully out of love can be the catalyst in making a change.”
