2016 – NSS Ambassadors Fall Meeting
A great opportunity to meet like-minded peers, the Ambassadors also brainstormed throughout the day to plan the future of the program. On the light-hearted side of the day, activities included a digital scavenger hunt and a mannequin challenge with NSS Life board members.
During the day, the Ambassadors participated in a leadership workshop with Wayne Kurtz, a speaker and coach dedicated to fearless exploration in both business and life. To end the day, the Ambassadors volunteered for the Homeless Children’s Education Fund, a nonprofit organization established in 1999 to support the educational needs of children experiencing homelessness in Allegheny County, PA.
2016 – SeptemberFest
Held at the NSS Heritage Museum in McMurray, PA, Ambassadors participated in a day of fun and Slovak cultural activities including cooking demonstrations, crafts, puppet shows, traditional food and dance. Specifically, the Ambassadors organized and managed the kids’ corner where youth attendees could choose to have their face painted, color, create a parachute, play a Slovak stamp game, and decorate a traditional honey cake.
2016 – Join Hands Day
Join Hands Day’s mission is to generate awareness about what grassroots volunteerism can do in communities across the nation, while also bringing youth and adults together to build lasting friendships across generations. As part of Join Hands Day, the NSS Ambassadors dedicated their time at Penn Hills Volunteer Fire Department in Verona, PA, in support of the Animal Rescue League’s Wildlife Center. The Center had several resident critters that were not able to be rehabilitated and released back into the wild. This event brought awareness to the community in addition to raising funds for the Center.
