Student Service Program – April Volunteer Project

On Saturday, April 30th, the Ryan Nece Foundation partnered with Friends of the Children – Tampa Bay, which strives to impact generational change by empowering youth who are facing the greatest obstacles through relationships with professional mentors – 12+ years, no matter what.

Friends of the Children – Tampa Bay brought six (6) of their 2nd graders for a day of tutoring with the Ryan Nece Foundation’s Student Service Program members. The volunteer opportunity began with an explanation of both alliteration and rhyming. Then, the Student Service Program members, as well as the 2nd graders and Friends of the Children – Tampa Bay staff all introduced themselves by using an alliterative adjective for their name.

The Student Service Program members continued the lesson by reading some alliterative and rhyming stories (Pete the Cat and the Perfect Pizza Party and Wonky Donkey). Later, the Student Service Program members led tongue twisters and word games. The 2nd graders did a great job on both! Thanks to the Ryan Nece Foundation, each child was given a bag with books, snacks, and a gift from Chick-fil-A.

“Thank you to the Ryan Nece Foundation for working with Friends of the Children. The kids we support benefit greatly by engaging with and learning from the high-schoolers that you support!” – Rick McClintock, Executive Director, Friends of the Children – Tampa Bay.
