We all know the benefits of volunteering. Unfortunately, national rates are declining, especially among youth adults. But there is a group of young adults stepping up and really making a difference. Junior Chamber International, or JCI, is an international group of young active citizens with a mission to bring together people and organizations to solve problems. State President of the Maryland Jaycees, Emily Nock, and 2017 National Vice President, Neil Fitzgerald, join us in the studio to talk about what this group of young adults does and how you can join.
College tuition can be expensive and if you’ve ever been in those shoes, you know that a little help paying for school can go a long way. Nicole Buffington and Sara Lowery are with the Princess Anne Alumnae Chapter of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority and join us today. One of their goals is to help youth on Delmarva with scholarships. Nicole and Sara tell us about who can quality for the scholarships and how the community can help raise funds for the scholarships. “Serendipitea: Sounds by the Sea” is Sunday, Nov. 19 from 3 pm-6 pm at Richard A. Henson Center at UMES.
Kent Sussex Industries, or KSI’s sole purpose is to assist people with disabilities in the pursuit of employment. Chief Executive Officer of KSI, Craig Crouch, tells us about what KSI does, who they serve, how they are changing lives and what the community can do to help.
We’re all familiar with the classic “Cinderella” fairy tale. But what happens when you throw in some hilarity, a lot of talent and put the production in the hands of our youth?

The shows are Nov. 10-12 at Clear Space Theatre Company. Purchase tickets here. We even have “Cinderella” played by Grace Morris in the studio to perform two songs from the play.
