Everyone deserves to have a stable and loving presence in their life, especially during childhood. Sadly, too many kids in the Harrisburg area face growing up without a complete support system behind them. That’s where the Center for Champions steps up.
As a friendly neighbor, the team at Faulkner Nissan Harrisburg is proud to spotlight fellow businesses and organizations making an impact throughout the capital city. Read on to learn about their LIFE on LIFE mission and how you can get involved today!
Some of the most important lessons aren’t taught in the classroom—they’re learned by spending consistent quality time with a role model. Children are inspired by what they see from those they interact with most.
For many reasons, some children lack that positive influence needed to help them grow. That’s why Center for Champions exists—to be a type of launchpad for kids to reach their full potential.
Located within the Allison Hill neighborhood of Harrisburg, this giving organization has already paired dozens of mentors with children from nearly every walk of life. Providing full training along with a wide range of resources, Center for Champions ensures their volunteers are supplied with what they need to make a positive impact on a child’s life.
From weekly hangouts on-site at Center for Champions’ ROOTED program to LIFE on LIFE outings around the local community, children enjoy having safe, one-on-one interactions so they can express themselves freely all while having fun in the process.
Working closely with the child’s parents or guardians, mentors have the opportunity to lend a hand with both the good and the sometimes-difficult moments of growing up. By simply being available and present, they provide children with a support system to mirror and ultimately blossom.
Are you an adult looking to share your time and heart with a local child in need? Do you know a child or teen who might benefit from having a relationship with a mentor? If so, Center for Champions wants to hear from you!
