The founding SD1 Chapter of Teen Volunteers in Action (TVIA) started the 2015-2016 year with its annual kick-off meeting Sept. 13 at the Rancho Santa Fe Community Center. The event’s guest speaker was Kenneth Blattenbauer, president of Miracle League of San Diego. He spoke to the boys, grades 7-12, and their parents.
Miracle League of San Diego is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping children with physical and mental disabilities to achieve their full potential. This is accomplished through having the disabled youth play baseball through an organized league.
The TVIA youth volunteer at Miracle League baseball games throughout the season, and Blattenbauer addressed the importance of Miracle League to the community of San Diego and discussed how volunteerism is important to Miracle League and to organizations throughout San Diego.
TVIA is an organization of young men who, together with their families, participate in structured programs of volunteerism, philanthropy, and personal development.
