11/02/10 - This past weekend, Kids to Kids' all-star Christa Thoeresz, our first, fearless and fabulous adult leader, attended the 2010 Net Impact Conference in Michigan. Net Impact is a really neat organization that connects people who are making a difference in the world through business. You can learn more about them here on their website if you're interested.

While at the conference, Christa met one of our first ever Kids to Kids grant recipients! Jacquelyn Hunter served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Belize. While she was there, she worked with an organization in her village called Youth for the Future. Together, they received a Kids to Kids Grant Award to hold a Volleyball Empowerment Camp and Tournament. While the camp was only a few days long, Jacquelyn says that it was one of the most transformational things that happened in her community during her service!

Ms. Hunter is now studying business at the Thunderbird School of Global Management.
