Providing Children with Help and Hope Mission Statement The Second Mile challenges young people to achieve their potential as individuals and community members by providing opportunities for them to develop positive life skills and self-esteem as well as by providing education and support for parents and professionals addressing the needs of youth. THE SECOND MILE ANNUAL REPORT 2010
You're reading the first 10 out of 12 pages of this docs, please download or login to readmore.
A Year Like No Other In this column last year, we wrote that “we anticipate that 2010 will continue to be challenging” and, indeed, it was – challenging like never before in our history. As in 2009, The Second Mile received more requests to help children and teens than ever. Unfortunately, unlike the previous year, in serving the children who needed us, we spent significantly more than we raised in 2010: we had a $228,000 loss in our net cash flow for operations. Thanks to you, our donors, spending more than we raise has been a rare occurrence in the history of The Second Mile, but last year, overall giving to all charities was down 11%. So we are very thankful that our Board has managed The Second Mile prudently, creating a “rainy day” fund for years such as this past one. The Second Mile was able to use that fund to provide the needed services. Of course, we want to continue serving those children who have come to count on us, but we cannot continue to operate a deficit budget. The arithmetic is clear: $228,000 = our entire Leadership Institute or all 6 of our Friend Programs or 4 Challenge Program camp weeks. In order to keep our commitments to those children who are now part of The Second Mile family, we need your help to make sure that this past year’s financials are an aberration in our history of supporting the children who need us. The children we serve have often experienced many broken promises in their young lives; that’s why our mantra has always been, “No broken promises, ever.” We need to continue to be the family they can count on! You generously reached into your pockets and your purses last year and continue to do so, and that is certainly what makes it possible for so many children to count on us. But we know that you, too, want to make sure we return to a funding level this year that enables us to serve every child who is part of our family. Can you introduce the needs of Second Mile children to friends and family? Is there a business colleague who might be interested in sponsoring a Second Mile event or a corporation that might be willing to sponsor a camp week if you asked? This year, more than any other, we are asking for your help in connecting us to others, like you, who care Board Chairman Bob Poole and President/CEO Dr. Jack Raykovitz about children who need someone to “go the second mile” for them. Let us know if you need additional information from us or The Second Mile staff in order to do that. Together, we can keep our promises. Jack Raykovitz, Ph. D. President/CEO Bob Poole Board Chair

You Help Change Children’s Lives… A “THANK YOU” FOR YOUR IMPACT FROM TWO SECOND MILE LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE PARTICIPANTS “During high school, I participated in The Second Mile Leadership Institute. Through the program, I learned leadership skills and ways I can give back to my school and community. The program gave me confidence to run for my high school’s student council, where I was elected Vice President during my senior year, and I was also selected to as Salutatorian at my graduation ceremony. Now, as a freshman at Penn State University, I am looking forward to expanding my leadership skills and meeting new people. I would not have had the skills or confidence to do any of this without The Second Mile. Thank you for all that you have done for me.” -Poi Veng Suon Statewide Program Service Totals 626 119 782 82 124 147 4,124 322 201,825 280,125 582 5,754 Participated in safe activities with caring mentors through the Friend Program Built outer strength and inner character through the Friend Fitness Program Developed key skills and set personal goals through the Challenge Program Benefited from 395 Counseling sessions Received Guidance and Referral information Received critical support through the Children’s Scholarship Fund Enjoyed recreation and support through 59 Foster Family Support activities Learned leadership skills to heal communities through the Leadership Institute Addressed important issues through the Nittany Lion Tips Program* Learned new skills through PEAK Videos I or II or Play Kit I* Participated in Professional Training through 55 different sessions Attended 50 Community Education presentations * estimated number based upon counselor reports The Arthur C. and Evelyn M.

The Second Mile motivated me to learn how to be courageous, confident, and resilient, and taught me the importance of staying positive in order to be a great leader. The Institute also helped improve my social skills as my team initiated a project in our schools, a Celebration of Diversity. I also decided to serve others in ways beyond our team project: the program motivated me to spend time doing community service by becoming a companion to the elderly and disabled and by picking up trash to beautify our neighborhood. The Second Mile taught me that I can have an impact on our society, the environment and my community. As a freshman at Penn State University Park, I want to continue to give back by volunteering to educate and encourage my peers to accomplish their goals. I know that without the support of The Second Mile, I would not have gotten this far.” -Theara Lanh the beneficiary of a retirement plan, a charitable remainder trust, the gift of a life insurance policy naming The Second Mile as beneficiary, and/or the execution of an estate note. We wish to thank the members of this society for providing a foundation for the future of our organization. “We are very proud to support The Second Mile in their endeavors to make life better for today’s youth. The opportunity to change lives and better prepare our youth for life is very Dallas and Di Krapf exciting, and the programs that The Second Mile offers truly have a big impact on young people when they need help most. One of the ways that The Second Mile’s impact can continue to grow is if you plan to make a gift to the Arthur C. and Evelyn M. Sandusky Society and challenge others in the community to join us. We look forward to the year ahead and welcome you to be a part of this wonderful organization, making it a part of your estate planning.” —Dallas and Di Krapf
Prevention Programs Nittany Lion Tips Nittany Lion Tips are sports trading cards featuring short educational or motivational messages from Penn State athletes. These are timely and diverse messages that pertain to issues of normal development. Each set consists of 25 unique Tips from student-athletes on the football, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s gymnastics, and wrestling teams. Nittany Lion Tips have been distributed by more than 1,755 school counselors and other youth-service professionals to students in elementary and middle school. Counselors reported that, on average, they used the program with 115 students. Each of the two annual additions are accompanied with a facilitators guide, which offers further concepts and activities that expand on the ideas found on the cards. The Second Mile Leadership Institute teaches, encourages, and empowers students from across Pennsylvania to make a difference in their school communities. Each spring, teams of high school sophomores, along with faculty mentors, attend a four-day conference featuring workshops and guest speakers that focus on topics ranging from fundraising and publicity to group function and communication styles. After the Institute, students return home to carry out a service project that they planned during the conference. In 2010, 322 participants representing 62 high schools attended the Institute and are now working on a broad range of projects that will improve their communities. “Thank you for providing this wonderful resource. I used them as a reward during Red Ribbon week this year.” —School Counselor from Lackawanna County “I want to thank you for the Tips program. We find it very helpful, and the children love the sports cards.” —School Counselor from Erie County “This has been such a valuable experience for our students and even for me as a teacher. The students were able to grow an amazing amount in only four days. The staff made it so productive and used the time so efficiently. Nittany Lion Tips’ athletes share important messages with youth on the card backs. A team at The Leadership Institute works together to guide a ball through a maze.

Scott and Karen Mitchell PEAK Prevention: Education and Awareness for Kids (PEAK) is a series of videotapes and a play kit that highlight issues such as peer pressure, rejection, and self- esteem. There are currently three modules available to educators, with more than 2,075 school counselors currently using them. All modules are accompanied with facilitators’ guides that provide additional opportunities to further apply the information from the modules. “We used this kit during anti-bullying week. The kids really took a lot from it, and we had some interesting class discussions. I feel like several of the kids made a breakthrough by connecting their actions to the characters in the play.” —Teacher from Allegheny County “The kids enjoyed acting out the play and rotating who got to be each character. Thank you so much for providing this program to schools The Second Mile’s PEAK (Prevention: Education and Awareness for Kids) play kit helps schools combat bullying throughout the Commonwealth. Early Intervention Programs Challenge This year, The Second Mile helped 782 young people develop the skills they need to succeed through its Challenge Program. During their week-long session of residence, Challenge Program participants set behavior and academic goals and decide on community service projects for the upcoming school year. Through encouragement and a positive environment, collegiate counselors, professional staff, and volunteers guide the children to work on self-awareness and skills in conflict resolution and effective communication, as well as goal setting. at no cost.” —School Counselor from Westmoreland County continued next page
Challenge continued “The Second Mile has changed my life. I don’t pre-judge others anymore. I can make friends easily and, most importantly, have fun.” —Participant from Berks County “I am switching jobs, but I will continue to refer kids to the Challenge Program because it is so valuable to the kids who are in it. It’s a great program!” —Youth Service Professional from Juniata County These Challenge campers display teamwork as they propel their canoe through the lake. During the following year, participants use these new skills to earn their way back to the Challenge Program by meeting their goals. The Second Mile offers year-round support to participants, their families, and their counselors through written, phone, or in-person contact to assist in the child’s efforts to achieve his or her goals. During the 2009-2010 school year, The Second Mile staff made 9,308 contacts to participants and 6,924 contacts to school counselors to help them stay connected to the program and focused on their goals. We also held 32 mid-year events, attended by 1,295 participants and their families. In 2010, 536 past participants who had earned their way back to residential weeks received achievement certificates and 172 children were given special recognition for their community service. Through mentoring and individual strength training exercises, The Friend Fitness Program helps adolescents achieve personal, academic, and fitness goals. In 2010 the Friend Fitness Program provided opportunities for improvement to 119 teens at sites located in Centre and Chester Counties. During bi-weekly sessions, 73 adult mentors assisted students in working on their goals while providing positive encouragement. This Program also includes social and team-building activities such as picnics, group workouts, and luncheons for students and mentors. Friend Fitness “My favorite thing about the Friend Fitness program is the fun and friendly environment. My mentor really helps me stay motivated and has given me great advice over the years.” —Friend Fitness Mentee from Centre County A Friend Fitness mentor works with her mentee on an abdominal exercise. $2,000-4,999 continued Charles and Peggy Mogish New Holland Autogroup Heidi Nicholas and Bruce Fleischer Nittany Bank Northwest Savings Bank Orrstown Bank Kimberly Ortenzio-Nielsen and Robert Nielsen Parker Agle Enterprises, Inc.

Jesse and Carolyn Arnelle Art Leach and Sophie Penney Friend The Friend Program is a mentorship program that joins together a collegiate volunteer with an elementary student in need of extra support to participate in healthy, educational activities. The Friend Program is currently available at six sites: Blair County, Centre Region, Clinton County, Lancaster County, Lehigh Valley, and the Southeast Region. Over the past year, 626 Young Friends, 155 adult volunteers, and 355 student volunteers participated in 55 events, including picnics, holiday parties, swimming, and bowling. Counselors who refer kids to the program have cited improved social skills, goal-directed behavior, and attention to academics as some of the benefits of this program. “I am truly honored to be one of The Second Mile’s scholarship recipients. I participated in the Challenge Program for seven years, earning my way back to camp each year and eventually serving as a camp ‘Leader.’ The Second Mile prepared me with the skills and confidence to get me where I am today – attending community college and volunteering at our local Humane Society. The Second Mile taught me goal setting, teamwork, and leadership skills and gave me self-confidence. I know my education is essential, and without generous people like you, community college wouldn’t be possible. I sincerely thank you for this opportunity so that I can make a difference in the lives of others – and animals – on a grander scale in the future.” —Kristin Community-Based Programs Children’s Fund-Grants, Recognition, and Scholarships The Children’s Fund offers support by providing scholarships, grants, and community service awards to youth across the Commonwealth. Children’s Fund Grants seek to offer assistance that other agencies or government programs may not provide. Grants are given for needs like school supplies and extra curricular activity registration fees. Eighty-three (83) young people were awarded grants this past year, while hundreds of additional children received non-monetary grants, such as clothing, through in-kind donations. In addition, former Second Mile participants have the opportunity to receive Post-Secondary Scholarships to assist with school-related expenses. Last year, The Second Mile awarded 52 such scholarships. Finally, through Community Service Awards, The Second Mile recognizes high school seniors for their exemplary commitment to community service. Last year, 12 seniors were awarded a certificate and savings bond for their service of others. continued next page
“This was my first event and we enjoyed the Foster Family Support In partnership with Pennsylvania Children and Youth Agencies, The Second Mile’s Foster Family Program works to recruit and retain foster parents. Through the use of tools aimed at attracting foster parents, recognizing outstanding foster parents, and offering recreational activities for foster families, more than 4,000 foster family members benefited from this program in 2010. These family members represented 33 counties and took part in 69 recreation events, all at no cost to them. Among these events were multi- county activities held at sites including Hersheypark, Allenberry Playhouse, Knoebels, and Lakemont Park. The Second Mile offers counseling services and provides referrals to outside professionals and agencies in cases where needs fall outside of the scope of existing Second Mile programs. In 2010, the Second Mile was able to refer 124 young people to appropriate sources of support. Additionally 82 young people received 395 counseling sessions through the State office. Allenberry Playhouse thoroughly! We like to do different activities with our kids like this. Great job!” —Foster Parent from Perry County “Thank you for inviting us back to Lakemont Park once again this year. We had so much fun and this is a great opportunity to connect with other foster families. Our children meet other children in same situation as them. Seeing the smiles on their faces is priceless! We hope to be invited back again next year!” Volunteers in our Foster Family Support Progarm work hard to get lunches set up for foster families attending our event at Hersheypark.
