Zoe Parmer from Greater Newark Boys & Girls Club Named Finalist for Jefferson Awards

Zoe Parmer from the Greater Newark Boys & Girls Club was chosen as one of the finalists for Outstanding Service by a Young American for our event on April 29th at The Queen.

 

Zoe Parmer has been a leader in her community, our Boys & Girls Club and among her Keystone Club peers. Zoe has volunteered countless hours in her community though various projects, including: Breakfast with Santa, Kohl’s Shopping Event for Orphans, Martin Luther King, Jr. Random Acts of Kindness, Justice in Time with the Police Department and a volunteer for our annual Cecil’s World Classic weekend fundraiser and teen event.  Over the summer our Keystone Club volunteered and helped organize Greater Newark Boys & Girls Clubs first Annual Book Bag Drive.  The book bag drive was able to serve over 150 kids with book bags and school supplies with the help of Zoe’s leadership. She helped to organize donations of book bags and food in order to make the event a true success.  Zoe has also facilitated Botvin Life Skills Trainings, a life skills program taught to our Summer Fun Club campers. Through this program she taught about 50 youth the importance of decision making skills and drug and alcohol prevention.  Zoe was able to learn more about drugs and alcohol and ways to teach these important points to younger members.  Way to BE GREAT Zoe!
