Charity For Middle, High School Boys Thriving in Ahwatukee
A local charity designed for middle and high school boys to give back to the community is thriving in Ahwatukee.
According to the Ahwatukee Foothills News, the Boys Team Charity Ahwatukee is an organization started last year by parents who wanted their sons to have an opportunity to learn about giving back to their community.
Already, the organization has reportedly attracted 90 boys in seventh- to 12th-grade, and the charity is completely managed by parent volunteers.
There is an annual minimum for service hours and it applies to parents and their sons, the report said. Middle-schoolers is 15 hours, while 10 hours of minimum service is required for high school sophomores through seniors, the article said.
“I’d say it’s been a learning experience. It opened my eyes to the struggles much of the rest of the world goes through,” said Jorden Morales, a Desert Vista High School junior.
