Being a volunteer means being part of a movement. It means being advocate for building a healthy Mind Spirit and Body. Our Fall Mission Trip teens in 2018 were rewarded by their efforts when visiting the Sioux YMCA. We are continuing our movement by heading to an area nestled between the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Cherokee National Forest in East Tennessee. Once Upon a Time Breakaway will challenge our teens to do things that help connect with nature and humanity.
