Children’s Hospital & Ronald McDonald House Teen Service Groups

The Children’s Hospital & Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) of the Coastal Empire are reaching out to the community teenagers in search of candidates who are interested in becoming active members of the our Teen Service Groups. We are looking for responsible, goal driven teens who are proven leaders within the community. Teens for these groups will serve as the “teen leaders” for volunteering and programming components within these two organizations.
Involvement for the Teen Service Groups will consist of meeting attendance, virtual meeting participation, committee responsibilities, hospital and RMHC volunteering, fundraising and other opportunities as defined by Children’s Hospital and RMHC Advisors/Staff. All Teen Service Group members must obtain permission from their parents / guardians prior to accepting any service obligations.
Teens will be selected through an application and interview process.
Qualifications for Teen Service Groups:
1. New candidates MUST be beginning junior year in August of 2015. Only existing RMHC Teen Board members may apply as seniors for the 2015-2016 RMHC Yellow Shoe Crew.
2. Teen Service Group members must be able to guarantee a commitment of either 12 or 18 months of service starting fall of 2015. Length of service and required hours for each member varies based upon each group’s service involvement and will be defined at orientation. Teen Advisory Board (Children’s Hospital) and Yellow Shoe Crew (RMHC) members must guarantee their ability to commit a minimum
of 40 hours for 12 months & 60 hours for 18 months.

Descriptions for each teen service group are listed below:

1) RMHC Yellow Shoe Crew
The Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Coastal Empire’s Yellow Shoe Crew is a group of 25 teens with the collective goal to help make a difference in the lives of critically ill or injured children and their families who are receiving medical care at a nearby facility. As stewards of the Ronald McDonald House, Yellow Shoe Crew members work together to advocate, fundraise, and raise community awareness for the programs and services provided by RMHC including the Ronald McDonald House, the Ronald McDonald House Family Rooms, as well as the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile within their respective communities.
The Yellow Shoe Crew consists of 25 community teenagers who have demonstrated excellence in leadership and community service. Members participate in meetings, fundraising events, volunteering opportunities, community outreach and work on projects, programming, community projects and other services affecting Children and Families of the Ronald McDonald House.

This goes beyond just working a shift in the House or Family Room. The meetings are interactive and the outreach proactive. In partnership with their mentor group, the Red Shoe Society of the Coastal Empire, the teens wear their YELLOW CONVERSE sneakers proudly throughout the community as they work to complete their mission of advocating and educating the community about the Ronald McDonald House and the various programs.
* If you will be a sophomore or are looking for less of a commitment, please fill out the application for the RMHC Volun-teen program.
** Due to the limited number of Yellow Shoe Crew members, qualified applicants who are not selected for this group will be eligible to sign up for the RMHC Volun-teen program and may be moved up
to the Yellow Shoe Crew if a position becomes available. This does not apply to applicants who are only seeking membership in the Children’s Hospital Teen Advisory Board.
