Local High School Students Come Together to Make A Difference Over Spring Break

The Giving Coast

SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY MAR 24, 2021

While communities across the nation are still facing the implications of COVID-19 one year later, the nonprofit sector needs support now more than ever. Forty-six high school students in Sarasota dedicated 425 service hours to nine different nonprofit partners and community sites through the Boys & Girls Clubs of Sarasota and DeSoto Counties’ 7th annual Alternative Spring Break, March 15 to 19. “Alternative Spring Break gives our high school students a sense of ownership in their community,” said Caroline Nigro, Teen Program Director at Boys & Girls Clubs. “They get to learn about our area’s key resources, give back and see how they can help our partners save time, save energy and focus more on better serving their clients during this time of great need.”
