“Volunteering at Brigade is one of the most meaningful parts of my life here in Wilmington. I truly feel I’m helping to make a positive difference in the lives of our area’s youth. Whether it’s spending time out on the soccer field, mentoring one individual, or talking with a group of Club members, I know I’m part of something special. I’m part of an organization that provides these kids with enriching experiences that can help them stay on a positive path, one that will lead them to be successful adults and engaged citizens.

 Jeremy Wilson, Past CORPs Vice Chair

    • Identify prospective partnerships with local business, civic, and non-profit organizations
    • Organize and implement fundraisers
