Adventure Unlimited and The Albert Baker Fund (ABF) have a deep appreciation for our shared values, and the way that our missions bless so many in our Christian Science family.
This is especially true with our newest programs. When Adventure Unlimited launched the National Leadership Council (NLC), ABF stood with us from the outset, providing encouragement and substantial financial support to help bring this wonderful idea to fruition. With every class, DiscoveryBound’s (DB) NLC program is proving the power and value of meaningful connections between outstanding program participants and adult mentors.
When The Albert Baker Fund first presented the ABF Career Alliance, Adventure Unlimited immediately recognized the benefits of “a career alliance for the extended Christian Science community”, especially if those who love and value Adventure Unlimited were to become involved. We also saw how it would bless our young alumni and the summer staff at the A/U Ranches. As the Career Alliance progresses, we’re seeing that ABF Career Allies, like DB NLC mentors, are making a big difference in the lives of young people.
The Career Alliance needs individuals who can share their own career experience and insights with new college graduates and those in a mid-career transition. It’s often a simple phone conversation, but it can be immensely helpful to someone just starting out or navigating a new course. ABF’s Career Allies are also finding it incredibly satisfying to help others in this way.
The ABF Career Alliance is a tremendous way to build connections that strengthen our community, including the Adventure Unlimited family. We encourage you to to take these steps to get involved:
- Go to www.abfcareeralliance.org and click the gray oval “Sign up to become a Career Ally”,
- Create a New Account, and save your Profile,
- Post a Connection to offer an informational interview; this step is vital as it opens the door to help another.
For all that you’re doing for us at Adventure Unlimited and our broader community, we are deeply grateful!
Executive Director, Adventure Unlimited
