Teen Volunteers in Action parent luncheon

Teen Volunteers in Action (TVIA) recently held the second of three parent luncheons at the Lomas Santa Fe Country Club for the 2012-2013 season to discuss business, socialize and learn.

The event’s featured speaker was Dr. Lisa Boesky, a psychologist whose topic was “Communicating with your teen: How, when and what to say.”

Serving the north coastal communities of Del Mar, Carmel Valley, Rancho Santa Fe, Cardiff, Encinitas and Carlsbad, TVIA [] is an organization of young men committed to developing community leaders through a structured program of volunteerism, philanthropy and personal growth.

Founded in early 2000, TVIA is structured as a way for parents and their sons to engage in charitable service and leadership development.

Membership is made up of 180 boys in grades seven through 12, limited to approximately 30 per grade, to ensure a meaningful volunteer experience.

TVIA is now accepting applications for new members for 2013-2014 season:
