Get Inspired

“The solution to difficult situations or problems might be right in front of you. Often, all it takes is ONE PERSON to ask a question, suggest an idea, or plan a project. Suddenly the difficult situation or problem is attacked and things start improving.”

– Julie Supernaw

DAYS believes that high school students can make a huge difference in our community. In fact, this happens a lot! You might know people who volunteer with younger children as tutors, coaches or babysitters. Perhaps you know a group of students who make our community a better place through their music or visual art. You may have heard about classmates who organize awareness and fundraising projects to fight cancer, juvenile diabetes, multiple sclerosis, or Alzheimer’s disease. Maybe you know students who help stock our food pantry, feed the homeless or play bingo with nursing home patients.

We invite you to look around. Find an issue that could use YOUR unique idea to help make it better.

Support & Inspiration

Our mission is to empower youth in the Delavan community to find or create service projects they are truly passionate about. See our resources for grant help and mentor connections.
