Victoria needs your help! She is 17, a senior in high school and has been involved with NVEEE and its leadership program for 4 years. She worked all through high school to help her family with expenses and to save for college. Without our help she would not be able to attend PALS. Join me in supporting this amazing young lady.
Have you or someone close to you ever been bullied? Please explain the situation and outcome:
"I have been bullied relentlessly since 3rd grade all the way up till my freshman year in high school. Much of it was simply verbal but sometimes it has gotten so brutal and physical I had to be hospitalized for my injuries and for my mental health since the bullying led to me having severe depression and anxiety."
Besides earning service hours, why is it important to you to attend a conference like PALS?:
"Since I have been bullied for such a long time, I know how painful it can be and the damage it can do to someone. I never had anyone or anything to go to when I was suffering, and I want to change that. I don't want anyone else to go through the pain I did, and I want other people to have people and a place they can rely on when they're hurting. PALS is a safe space for so many people and it's important to me."
On Sunday, July 9th join us at “Brunch and Bowl to Strike out Bullying” and help raise money to support NVEEE's Peace Ambassador Leadership Summit (PALS) for high school students. Whether you are a young professional just entering the workforce, or someone more seasoned and ready for retirement, we can all agree on one thing, BULLYING SUCKS! This is an opportunity for you to make a difference in the lives of young people in South Florida schools by connecting with other young professionals and network for a good cause.
