“One sector of the organization focuses upon building onsite after-school clubs, which consist of 10 boys and girls of similar ages and which meet one day a week for two hours with one consistent mentor.

"Kambria Givens, Camp Fire’s honoree, is a delightful young woman who came to Camp Fire last year through a program that provided opportunities to build a better life. She mentored a group of youth whose behavior and social skills had a history of mayhem. She stuck with them all year, taking the time to address their issues of the day through fun and meaningful programming. She came to understand the needs of each child and the culture of the club as a whole and adapted her mentor programming to meet their needs. At the end of the year, she loved them, and they loved her.

"This year the youth are engaged with the programming and take ownership in the club. ‘Kam’ now mentors four clubs at different schools because she sees the value of what she is doing for herself and for youth. It's a win-win situation for all of us, and the entire Camp Fire staff is very proud of the personal and professional strides Kambria Givens has made over the past year.”
