Our Student Service Program positively impacts teens in the Greater Tampa Bay Area by teaching them the principles needed to become the next generation of servant leaders in our community dedicated to lifelong volunteerism, philanthropy, and civic responsibility. This two-year program trains high school juniors to look beyond themselves, lead with empathy, and strategically serve their community and those in need.


COVID-19 forced us to push all of our events to the Fall, so we wanted to create a simple way for people to give to our mission while supporting all of our signature events. If you have already chosen to support one of our events, you can easily upgrade your sponsorship to this all-inclusive level.
