|These Fort Thomas teenagers are volunteers with an international charity organization/provided|
Four Fort Thomas teenagers are working and traveling with an international charity to make the world a better place.
Taylor Hosea, Max Freyberger, Jack Tinkler, and Claire Tinkler, all from Fort Thomas, are a part of the Cincinnati chapter of CISV, a non-profit, non-political volunteer organization that offers global programs for children age 11 and up. Cincinnati was the first chapter of CISV established, just after World War II.
According to a news release, program locations for 2015 include Portugal, Indonesia, Spain, Austria, Faroe Islands, Germany, France, and the Philippines.
What makes the program stand out, the Fort Thomas teens say, is their interaction with other delegates from all over the world. The four have already been part of programs in Norway, Paris, Brazil and Mexico.
For any others who are interested, CISV is having an informational meeting Monday, Dec. 1 at 7 p.m., at Pleasant Ridge Presbyterian Church, on Montgomery Rd. in Cincinnati.
