FIREWALL BLAZES INTO 2014


We are so excited for what this year has in store for us and all of the kids that we impact every day! For our students and organization, it means a new semester and a clean start.  We have been celebrating our accomplishments of 2013, but now it’s a time for new goals, important resolutions, and a chance to let our FIRE shine like never before!

We are so thankful for all of you and the support you have given us, and we are thrilled at the opportunities that 2014 will provide us in transforming the lives of our students and impacting generations to come.


Lifework Leadership

BUILDING TOMORROWS LEADERS!

Over the past month, Firewall has had the pleasure of hosting a variety of local business leaders from Lifework Leadership. Students from three of our Centers were inspired as these successful leaders motivated them with passionate stories of overcoming obstacles, setting goals, and achieving their dreams.

 LIFEWORK LEADERSHIP IS AN ORGANIZATION COMMITTED TO TRANSFORMING LEADERS BY CLARIFYING THEIR CALLING; CHALLENGING THEIR MINDS; AND ENGAGING THEIR HEARTS FOR SERVICE.

WATCH THE VIDEO that they put together and read more about their experiences here at Firewall. 


 

 SERVANT LEADER SPOTLIGHT:  CHARLES

Charlie is a 7th grader at Orange Park’s Center. From helping his peers withtheir homework or volunteering to clean up, he has been a great example of a servant leader…

“FIREWALL HAS HELPED ME BY ENCOURAGING ME TO KEEP UP, TRY HARD AND NEVER GIVE UP. THEY LET ME TALK TO MY FRIENDS THEY ARE ALL REALLY NICE AND THEY EDUCATE ME ABOUT GOD AND SCHOOL. WHAT HELPS ME THE MOST IS EVERYBODY HAS A GREAT ATTITUDE AND IS POSITIVE AND THAT YOU CAN TRUST PEOPLE HERE. IT’S A PLACE WHERE YOU CAN FEEL AT HOME AND PROTECTED. I WILL KEEP COMING HERE AND PROBABLY WORK HERE IF I CAN…”

Find out more about Charlie and all of our other Servant Leaders from this school year!
