“By volunteering, I hope to broaden people’s horizons and perspectives, to walk in another’s shoes. I want to increase knowledge of the struggles communities face, and truly encourage compassion and the means for using that compassion to create something amazing.”
These are words from 16-year old Stanton College Preparatory School, Megan Federico.
Megan is a Varsity Lacrosse player, Varsity bowler, waitress and cashier at Bono’s Pit Bar-B-Q, member of the National English Honor Society and the National Spanish Honor Society.
She’s been a part of HandsOn Jacksonville’s Youth Leadership Council since it began in 2009. She has participated in Global Youth Service Day since 2010, with a service project in 2010 promoting fitness and wellness in children and in 2011, promoting environmental awareness for Earth Day – a project she will do again for GYSD this year.
Megan also attends youth council leadership meetings and volunteers at The Teacher Supply Depot and at The Human Race. Megan is an inspiration to all of us at HandsOn Jacksonville and we look forward to seeing the amazing things she will accomplish!
