Descriptions: The A Change of Pace Foundation is a 501c3 Non-Profit organization, established in 2007 after many years of conducting events as A Change of Pace Inc (est. 1987). Based in Davis, CA, the Foundations annual efforts include healthy family-oriented events, youth exercise programs (with specific focus on elementary school-age children), kids triathlons and camps, and community education. The Foundation is administered by a Board of Directors, of whom meet monthly. The Foundation relies on grants, donations, and special event income & sponsorships to fund our programs and events. We have more than twenty years of experience on the local, regional and national level in the running and multisport field. The Positive Energy Campaign, established in 2006, was designed to encourage positive exercise for kids through fun, fitness-oriented events. This Campaign now includes four high-profile events, including one of the largest kids triathlons in the country, the California Kids Triathlon. With less than 30% of tested K-12 students in California meeting the criteria to be in the Healthy Fitness Zone, we are striving to increase the number of kids we reach with our programs and events. Our events serve as a motivational tool for our after-school exercise programs. The A Change of Pace Foundation strives to encourage, educate and motivate kids to inspire life-long habits towards a healthy lifestyle. Keywords: Organizations , recreation

The students are 5th thru 12th graders. We are a non-profit organization and this year, for the first time, we did not receive a budget to work with, so mostly we have to rely on fundraisers. Our youth group is involved in service to the community in a variety of ways: we help the Lazarus Club with set-up for funerals, our dancers perform for schools and convalescent homes, we help with the Woodland Ecumenical Christmas Baskets; participate in ACS Relay for Life; the Christmas Parade; etc. Because I am the only adult working with the group, it is difficult to break into groups since an adult has to always be present. I am looking for interns to help in the following areas: music/drama/dance. We are interested in starting a contemporary worship band - I have the students, they have their instruments, but no director. Our dance group is a hip/hop, old school, salsa/merengue group. Would like someone who knows praise worship dance to provide assistance. Need creative, energetic, vibrant people to help. Preferably of the Catholic faith.
