Volunteerism and the Young Professionals

Earthfest is a worldwide in-service day focused on making our planet a better place to live. Our own Tiffany Eitel participates in their events regularly.

"The Young Professionals group I serve with participated in Earth Day," Tiffany said. "Our program was a great way to serve the community and planet, while getting together with people in my network."

The Young Professionals' goal is to give back 1000 hours of volunteer time in 2011. They started with Earthfest, a street fair celebration of Earth Day. A wide variety of activities were held in Downtown Dallas at Pegasus and Pioneer Plaza The annual festival, marking Earth Day, included live music, face painting, balloon artists and and other fun activities.

YP volunteers also participate in a range of cleanup activities. In 2010, YP members were assigned to a local Dallas elementary school and assisted with trash clean up around the campus, re-painted playground equipment and planted flowers and bushes. Donning outdoor attire and gardening gloves, the YPers improved the look and feel of the school, enhancing the environment for students, teachers and parents.
