People For People - What Matters Most CampaignIn partnership with Urban Family Council (www.urbanfamilycouncil.org) we promote abstinence until marriage. We seek to encourage youth to delay sexual activity until marriage which will increase the likelihood of healthier young people, marriages, and families in our community. Our goal is to impact at least 15% or more of Philadelphia’s youth population with the message of delaying sexual activity. In order to accomplish this we have gone into middle and high schools, as well as youth organizations and churches to teach abstinence until marriage via the WAIT (Why Am I Tempted) training curriculum www.waittraining.org. Some of the middle schools include Hill Freedman, Leeds and Wilson, etc. Some of the high schools include Olney, Simon Gratz, Bartram, and KensingtonPhiladelphiaPeople for People, Inc. - North Broad StreetPeople For People

Teenshop - Youth DevelopmentIn 1985 while working full-time as a television news personality at Philadelphia's CBS affiliate, Eleanor Jean Hendley wanted to make a positive difference in the community by developing a program to empower adolescent girls. As a former New Jersey public school educator who created and directed an award-winning after school dance program for girls, Ms. Hendley knew first hand how enrichment activities help students achieve and builds self-esteem. Then as now, the Teenshop program, which officially began on June 15th, was an innovative series of workshops, field trips, college tours, and community service projects. It was also designed to encourage academic excellence and promote abstinence, so membership was limited to students thirteen to eighteen who were not parents. Workshops were held every two weeks on Saturday mornings from September to June, and the adult presenters were experts in their diverse fields, including arts and culture, money management, social graces, and health and fitness. Interest in Teenshop quickly grew and adults soon inquired about starting affiliated chapters. Ms. Hendley had never considered expanding Teenshop, and had only planned the program as an activity for girls at her former church home. But after years of repeated requests, a new chapter was formed in 1990. There are currently four Philadelphia chapters and one in Los Angeles, California, each under the leadership of five dedicated female volunteers. More than one hundred and twenty-five girls enroll annually and ALL graduates attend college or pursue other education. Through the years numerous Teenshop alumnae, now successful working women, have come back to work in leadership positions in their former chapters.PhiladelphiaTeenshop, Inc. - Philadelphia; Center CityTeenshop

These sessions allow for more camping options for families, and brings together groups of children for a fun camping experience that Variety Club Camp has been offering for over 50 years! These sessions are called "PD/DD" on the attached application. We have three distinct sessions for campers with developmental delays - these are children and young adults with diagnoses like autism, Down Syndrome, ID and other developmental disabilities. These campers are usually able to walk, and often need assistance with other care and behavioral needs. Variety Club Camp offered overnight camping for these children and young adults in the summer of 2008 for the first time, and it was a big success! These sessions are called "DD" on the attached application. We have one unique session this season for campers with physical disabilities like cerebral palsy, spina bifida and muscular dystrophy that have a high level of functioning and social skills. This session is called “PD” on the attached application. MontgomeryVariety Club Camp and Developmental CenterVariety-The Children's Charity
