Atlanta, GA - Smoothie Kidz
I spent ten weeks of my summer working with Atlanta, Georgia’s North Side Hospital and the students of the Weber School to revitalize Smoothie Kidz a non-profit organization that I started in middle school. Smoothie Kidz works with chemotherapy patients to provide comfort, care and nutrition during times of need. While working with the Smoothie Kidz volunteers, I geared the programming to provide the volunteers with an advanced understanding of the services and logistics necessary for the students to independently operate a sustainable high school program. Although it is too early to gauge the longevity of our success, it appears that the students are taking the necessary initiative to spearhead future Smoothie Kidz operations.
