About the Teen Leadership Corps (TLC)

Middle and High school students serve as ambassadors for Cradles to Crayons, while developing leadership skills in the areas of community organizing and volunteer service. Participating students commit to approximately 8-10 hours per session. Responsibilities include: 
  • Supporting The Giving Factory staff during two volunteer shifts.
  • Increasing awareness of our mission by hosting a product collection drive or fundraiser in your own community.
  • Participating in one orientation and one leadership development workshop. 
  • Becoming an effective leader while developing new skills.
