Day at the Beach: Registration Closed Overview
WHAT: Day at the Beach “Adopt a Child for One Day” is an extraordinary experience during which over 300 at-risk children are paired on a one-on-one basis with over 250 volunteers for a day of fun, sun and friendship!
We partner with shelters, family service organizations, Title 1 schools and the Department of Child & Family Services to identify at-risk children ages 5 to 12 to be united with mentor volunteers for a day of relay races, beauty camps, face painting, surf lessons, boogie boarding and swimming in the ocean!! The experience fosters positive experiences for both the child and volunteer, promotes healthy interaction, inspiration and hope.
The goal of the event is to instill encouragement within inner city youth by exposing them to a memorable day, filled with fun, love, attention and positive community activity. Learn More
