by HOJ Communications Intern,
The 2012 Blueprint for Leadership cohort of 25 will join the 850 alumni as qualified leaders in our community to go out and make a difference in Jacksonville. As they look to the future of volunteering, let’s take a moment to look back and reflect on their journey together.
When choosing a community service project, the 2012 Blueprint for Leadership cohort decided they were most interested in improving the service areas of education, children, and health and wellness.
Focusing on these passions, they discovered the Episcopal Children’s Services’ Belmont Head Start Center was the perfect organization for their cohort project. The 2012 class worked tirelessly at improving the center through installing storage systems in the classrooms, an irrigation system and sustainable gardens outside that can be used for wellness education.
The cohort had an astounding financial impact of $28,621.07 on the Belmont Head Start Center.
HandsOn Jacksonville is proud of our new graduates and is excited to see what they have planned for our community in the future!
