    Teenshop - Youth Development - GraceIn 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.PhiladelphiaGrace TeenshopTeenshop

    Variety -The Children's Charity - Golf Buddies ProgramVariety – The Children’s Charity and the Philadelphia Section of the PGA of America collaborated to create the “Buddy Program” to enhance the lives of children with developmental and physical disabilities through the game of golf. Its goal is to create a buddy system between a PGA professional and a child with disabilities. Its main objective is to establish a meaningful friendship between both parties as the child is learning the fundamentals of golf while elevating the child’s self-esteem. The Golf Buddy Program requires the parent(s) to show a strong commitment to the child’s learning process. Once paired with a PGA Professional, it is the responsibility of the parent to arrange the child’s golf lessons unless the professional expresses that he/she would rather take on this responsibility. The Buddy Program will provide the required golfing equipment. All children and professionals enrolled in the program shall be registered and noted for future mailings and group activities through the offices of the Philadelphia Section of the PGA and Variety – The Children’s Charity.MontgomeryVariety Club Camp and Developmental CenterVariety-The Children's Charity
