Conejo Valley teen and Ambassador Scout in Troop #60565, Alison Canton, created Volunteen Conejo as part of her Girl Scout Gold Award project. Alison found that as a child in the Conejo Valley it was hard to find fun volunteer opportunities to participate in, so she created a website where children and their families could participate in volunteer opportunities together.
Alison’s Gold Award project aims to inform Troop Leaders, young families, schools, and any other organization looking for ways to involve children under 16 ways to volunteer. To compile her listings, Alison researched and contacted local non-profit organizations to create a website with opportunities for children to actively engage in their community — and Volunteen Conejo was born. Parents can click on the link and find a matching volunteer opportunity for the family.
Way to go Alison, on helping give back to your community!
