We are thrilled to announce CORE Foundation has been selected by Leadership Fairfax’s Emerging Leaders as a partnering nonprofit to complete a youth mentoring community service project. We are calling this program CORE Kids Incubator, and it offers a tremendous leadership and entrepreneurial development opportunity for our youth grades 8-12.

CORE Kids Incubator will provide youth an opportunity to participate in a leadership experience marketing and executing a recycled shoe drive for CORE. The project is intended to build and develop project management, marketing, and business acumen skills, while providing an opportunity to learn from peers. Kids will experience firsthand the opportunity to make a positive impact in our community while being mentored by young professionals. The group will be directed by the Leadership Fairfax group, Team Ascent, and participants will be given the opportunity to present their leadership growth journey through at Leadership Fairfax. Kids of all skill sets are encouraged to apply to this college resume building opportunity.

The project will kick off with a planning meeting in January and will culminate with a shoe drive in April.  The time commitment will be 4-5 hours per month. Meetings will take place in Reston, VA and times will alternate between evenings and weekends and will be coordinated via Doodle.  We understand kids are very busy with other activities!

Applications are accepted now through December 20th, and all youth grades 8-12 are encouraged to apply.
