Empowering the Next Generation of Leaders
The Dolphin Club is a community-based program that works with teens to brainstorm, plan and implement service and charity projects. The program harnesses the creative energies, individual talents and skills of students, partnering them with adults to bring about innovative community change.
Kids self-identify as doers and internalize the belief early in life that they can
make a real difference in the world, helping to change people's lives.
Started in Baltimore in 2004 by Mrs. Leeba Braun, the Dolphin Club has grown steadily in popularity and numbers over the last 12 years. Its fundraising and service projects have helped many thousands of people.
“The Dolphin Club is an avenue for teens to be a part of something in which they can take genuine pride. Focusing outward and giving to others combats depression and low self-esteem, and, in turn, creates a positive outlook and strong self-concept. Being involved in a cause greater than themselves enriches and gives meaning to their lives.”
