I am glad that the chapter was able to show their appreciation to the teachers for all the hard work and dedication they put into the education of others.

They then worked at the Boys and Girls Nite Out, which helps connect people from across the Nevada Community to play games and win prizes. Lastely, they participated in sorting food at a local food bank. So much done in so little time and I am happy to see them make an impact on such a diverse group of people!!

As this school year comes to a close, I would like to thank all of my chapters, old and new, for creating such successful events! I am so happy to see Communiteens grow over such a short period of time. We have, over the past school year, worked with organizations across the country and impacted thousands of lives. I know that, with our growing impact, we will continue to make waves in the communities around us.
Communiteens - AHS is hosting its last meeting of the school year tomorrow. We will be inviting new officers to the team. Instead of having Event Coordinators which helped design events for the chapter to participate in, we will also have a secretary, which will be in charge of attendance and other important aspects of managing the club.
Cannot wait to see the impact we make next year!!
This month was very successful for Communiteens!!!
The Davie Chapter, run by Ally Einbinder, held an event this month! They held our first ever fundraiser to support Marjory Stoneman Douglas.

Thank you to Ally for leading such an amazing event and I know that your future events will be just as impactful!
Brooke and the Weston Chapter made over 100 medals for WeFinishTogether. They have made over 500 medals this year so far and I am so happy to have seen them make so many in such a small amount of time!
Communiteens - AHS, run by me, teamed up with Best Buddies to participate in the Best Buddies Walk. The event was extremely fun, full of music and food. We were able to befriend people with disabilities, which hopefully changed the views of the disabled in the participant's eyes. They even gave out the WeFinishTogether medals from the Weston Chapter!
Thank you everyone for such a successful month and I cannot wait to see the same impact next month!!
I would first like to say that Communiteens is devastated by the tragedy that has occurred in Parkland last week. We are a strong group that are always looking to help our community. We would really like to be there for our friends at MSD during this terrible time. Please contact me at email@example.com if you have any suggestions regarding needs in our community. The Communiteens - AHS Chapter is working to help those who were affected by the Stoneman Douglas tragedy this past week. We will be collecting school supplies to help the teachers and students recover from the lack of access to classrooms. #msdstrong
The Cooper City Chapter, run by Jonathan Greenip, participated in the Annual ICareICure run. There were approximately 22 members who participated under the Communiteens team and finished the race. All the proceeds went to raise awareness for childhood cancer research.

Glad to see so much progress in the past month and I cannot wait to see even more progress within the next few months!
This year has been off to a great start! During this past month, we have done several events AND introduced a New Chapter!
The Communiteens AHS Chapter has completed their first event. The Event Coordinator designed an event to collect Cans of Food over the course of 2-4 weeks. After weighing all the cans, we have collected 130 lbs of food for Feeding South Florida. These cans will go directly to those who live every day not knowing where their next meal will come from. The club/chapter is extremely happy to make a difference in their community.
