Do you want to be READY to help your family, school or community in an emergency? R.E.A.D.Y. stands for Responding to Emergencies and Disasters with Youth and is run by you. Are you READY to become a leader in our community? Our goal is to introduce teens to a variety of skills including how to respond in emergencies, prevention strategies to keep people safe, problem solving, first-aid, team building, public speaking, grant writing and more. Club members will participate in a minimum of 3 community service projects in a year and will have opportunities to attend specialized trainings. Social activities are also part of the fun. Team members have opportunities to plan fundraisers to attend a week-long summer camp in Central Wisconsin that give them additional specialized skills, give them access to professionals in medical, military, & public service careers and develops teens as leaders in our community. Teens who accumulate club points from fundraising, attendance, community service hours etc. have the opportunity to attend camp at a reduced fee. This program is great for College Prep, completion of volunteer service hours for high school graduation or NHS requirements, and is great for personal growth. 

*Students must be 13 by June 16, 2019 to be able to attend camp
