Description of the Teen Board:
The Teen Board assists with the vision of the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) to provide family-centered care to implement positive change within the community. The Teen Board is composed of local teenagers of Macon that will log service hours at the House doing chores like basic house work, meal set up and clean up, and talking with the families residing there. Basically, the teens do anything that needs to be done--giving the House extra hands and the teenagers a way to serve. Teenagers are required to volunteer in the House a minimum of 15 hours within their membership year, prepare a meal for the families at least once a semester, and complete a fundraiser for the House.
About the House:
A Ronald McDonald House is a temporary home-away-from-home for the families of seriously ill, critically injured or medically fragile children who are receiving treatment at a nearby hospital. It is also a place where children who are receiving outpatient treatment are able to spend time with their families in a warm and cheerful environment.

applications are due by May 27th.**
