CERI's TC Youth Lead a Day Camp

To be able to grow leaders, you need to create the right environment—an environment where young people have the chance to develop good character, responsibility, and sensitivity to people and situations around them. CERI’s staff decided to look for these kinds of opportunities for our youth in the Transitional Care Program, and now we are putting them into action.

In August, a church organized a day camp in the village of Marinici, Moldova where around 250 kids came out for the activities. This was an overwhelming amount of youth for church volunteers to manage, so two of CERI’s staff and 13 of our youth from the Transitional Care Program decided to join and help with the camp wherever there was need.

Our youth served as group leaders helping with kitchen duties, organizing games, and participating in the dramas. After an amazing day at the day camp, our youth were very tired but very excited from the experience of leading a group for the first time. All the youth in the Transitional Care Program that helped with the camp made new friends and learned about the kids in the village that were living a harsh life having to work hard both in the fields and at home on a daily basis. CERI continues to look for opportunities to allow our youth, who are the recipients of support from beneficiaries like you, to give back to their communities and learn that they, too, can give to and serve others in need. These youth rose to the challenge and excelled. Thank you for helping CERI provide life lessons and leadership opportunities to at-risk youth in Moldova.
