Hi, I’m Joe. I’m a Youth Leader for Sandy Feet Initiative.
After my time volunteering for Sandy Feet back in October 2021, I became a certified Sibshop facilitator and started working the camps in early 2022. My current responsibilities as Youth Leader include co-facilitating our youth camps, engaging with all participants, and ensuring kids have a fun and safe camp experience.
As the sibling to my brother with autism, I share many of the anxieties the kids have about their own siblings. Giving the kids a chance to speak about their struggles and self-management tools can, I hope, help the kids through their struggles. These group and one-on-one discussions, plus the self-care activities, are among my favorite aspects of the program to lead.
Outside of Sandy Feet, I’m a full-time student studying business administration and video editing.
I’m looking forward to meeting you on the beach!
