Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow (STLF) to Volunteer at Turnstone in Fort Wayne

On March 13th, a group of 45 students from the University of Minnesota will stop in Fort Wayne to volunteer their time at Turnstone.  From 9 am to 12 pm, the students will help the agency clean-up from its Casino Night fundraiser, which will be held the prior evening.  The students are traveling across the nation as a part of the organization, Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow (STLF) and the Pay it Forward Tour.

STLF’s mission is to reveal leadership through service, relationships, and action.  The Pay It Forward Tour represents the core of STLF on all levels.  The Tour is a community service road trip that travels from city to city doing different service projects.  Students on a charter bus will visit cities of various sizes and learn about a variety of social issues, with the hopes of learning more about themselves, their own community, and the world.  The hundreds of service hours carried out on each Tour are meaningful, but the true impact of the program is through lasting friendships and commitments to paying it forward of each student impacted by their experience.

For more information on this group, please contact Beth Moody at 260-483-2100.
