We are excited to break ground on our Rebelle For A Cause Non-Profit Department and welcome Camp Ryan to the Rebelle Agency client portfolio. Like the fast-paced world of giving, we are sparing no time to introduce you to the innovative ways Camp Ryan is shaking up the non-profit industry. Welcome to the Good Weekend...
WHAT IS THE GOOD WEEKEND?
The Good Weekend is an extension of Good Friday - a collective of community service events in New York City hosted by millennial-focused philanthropic crew Camp Ryan. Camp Ryan provides the opportunity for young, Black volunteers to give back through participating in various social good experiences the Thursday and Saturday accompanying Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
These events do not only give back to New York City neighborhoods and organizations but allow city residents the opportunity to use their time and energy to improve the streets they walk on, and the lives of the people they pass everyday. It's a New York City BFF story, founded in bringing our communities together for a common goal - supporting each other. Just like the lessons we learned in our childhood summer camps.
Now, who's ready to head to Camp Ryan? Join us at the Good Weekend on Thursday, March 29th and Saturday, March 31st.
Below are the volunteer opportunities for the Good Weekend along with links to reserve your spot. But be quick, spaces fill up quickly!
Volunteer Opportunity #1
The Hunger Games | Harlem
For this Hunger Games experience we have the great opportunity to work with the scholars of Promise Academy 1 with our Hunger Games experience.
It starts with The Reaping...a celebratory first meeting, where campers (Camp Ryan volunteers) will prepare the bag lunches for the games to follow.
Then The Hunger Games begin...as teams all volunteers leave from one location with intent to distribute their lunch bags first, and win!
