Round Star Foundation

Round Star Foundation Logo

I feel sorry for anyone who has ever had to watch me play soccer. It’s a sport that I was not made to play. I never liked all the running, but it was at least fun for the first few years (because there was still hope that I would eventually score a goal). Hopefully my experience with the sport is an aberration, because Round Star Foundation is a New York, NY based non-profit “dedicated to extending the many benefits soccer can provide to every individual.” They do this by “providing access to high quality soccer activities, training and education” to help people with both physical and social development.

Chincoteague Bay Field Station Logo

I’ve been on vacation in Aruba for the past 10 days or so, and I’ve gone fishing every day. The fishing has been decent, but I’ve also see all kinds of wildlife from pelicans and sea turtles to eels and frigate birds. It’s amazing how much life a marine environment can support and what you can learn just from experiencing the ecosystem. This need not be formal education, but it can be. The Chincoteague Bay Field Station is a Wallops Island, VA based non-profit that makes a marine environment academic by providing “outstanding multi-disciplinary, educational and research opportunities that celebrate the rich natural, cultural, economic, and technological resources of the mid-Atlantic Coastal region through field-based and hands-on learning, often in affiliation with multiple public and private partners.”

Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum Logo

One of the worst parts about growing up is that the things that amazed you as a kid are often totally disappointing when you revisit them as an adult. When I was about five, my dad, my friend, my friend’s dad, and I visited the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York, NY (it must have been right after the museum opened). As a military obsessed little boy, it was the best thing ever. (And then we went to a dinosaur exhibit. And then we went to a baseball game! It was a truly awesome day.) More than twenty years later I went back to the Intrepid, and I was still blown away. Instead of being disappointed, I was able to recognize how impressive the aircraft carrier and the museum built on it really are. There’s a reason that nearly a million people people visit every year to see “a snapshot of heroism, education, and excitement.”

Chewonki Foundation

Chewonki Logo

I’ve mentioned before that my middle and high school sent its classes on annual trips to promote bonding and discourage cliquiness. In 6th grade it was a Whale Watch, in 7th grade it was Camp Hi-Rock, and in 8th grade it was supposed to be Chewonki. We had been hearing about Chewonki from the older kids for years, but for some reason they changed it to Camp Sloane for our class. That ended up being a 1-year experiment after 20 members of my 8th grade class (including me) got lost in the woods overnight with one teacher. I thought it was fun, but some others (and their parents) weren’t so amused. Anyway, when I was looking for a non-profit to feature today, I came across the Chewonki Foundation in Wiscasset, ME. The name is obviously familiar, even if I never got to go. The simplest way to describe Chewonki might be as a camp, but that doesn’t really do justice to the wide range of programs that they offer.

CampInteractive Logo

Last weekend we took a look at Outward Bound and their amazing outdoor programming. Today we’re going to look at an organization with a similar approach, but a much tighter focus. It’s called CampInteractive, and they introduce “the creative power of technology and the inspiration of the outdoors to underprivileged inner-city youth.” They’re based in New York, NY, but they often venture well outside of the city limits. The combination of nature and technology seems like a bit of an odd one, but CampInteractive is making it work. They realize that inner-city youth often lack both technical and leadership skills, so they’ve built programs to address both, albeit in different ways.

Seeds of Peace

I love hearing from readers when they land jobs, even if they didn’t find theirs through One Day One Job. I sometimes even hear from moms or dads who have been helping their kids with the job search and are thrilled to share a success story. That’s how I found out about Seeds of Peace. It’s a New York, NY based non-profit (with offices in Ramallah and Tel Aviv) that empowers “young leaders from regions of conflict with the leadership skills required to advance reconciliation and coexistence.” It was founded in 1993 by journalist John Wallach, and since then they’ve brought together more than 4,300 young leaders through a summer camp, “dialogue meetings, conferences, workshops, educational and professional opportunities, and an adult educators program.”

Outdoors for All Foundation Logo

Last night my girlfriend and I went out to some trendy new bar to meet up with a bunch of her friends from high school who are back in town for Memorial Day Weekend. I’m pretty sure that I came within a foot (and often much closer) of a thousand people while I was there. Today I’m headed up to Northern Michigan to spend the weekend fishing on one of my favorite rivers, where, hopefully, there won’t be anyone (besides my girlfriend and the fishing guide) within a thousand feet of me. I think that there’s no better way to spend a holiday (or any) weekend than being outdoors, and I’m pretty sure that the people at the Outdoors for All Foundation completely agree. In fact, the folks at the Seattle, WA based non-profit love the outdoors so much that they want to share it with those who might not usually get a chance to enjoy it, which is why they provide “year round instruction in outdoor recreation for people with physical, developmental, and sensory disabilities.” Through the work of over 700 volunteers, the Outdoors for All Foundation is able to help more than 2,000 children and adults with disabilities enjoy the outdoors every year.

Extreme Sports Camp

by on March 14, 2010

We’ve grown up in the age of extreme sports. Not only did we get to see the X Games when it was a new thing, but we also got to see sports like snowboarding make their way into the Olympics. I’m sure many of you have tried (and failed if you’re anything like me) your hand in at least one extreme sport. The best thing about extreme sports is that they’re huge confidence boosters for kids. While just playing baseball isn’t usually good enough—you actually need to be good at it—being able to do an extreme sports is an accomplishment in itself. That’s why it’s a perfect outlet to help “enhance the health, abilities, personal growth and social engagement of people with autism,” which is what the Basalt, CO based non-profit, Extreme Sports Camp, is all about.
