Key Champions

Sustaining an organization demands two levels of active community support. At one level, people who are recognized as leaders in the community are needed to serve as visible champions for the organization. For A Coming of Age FFA this includes the board of directors, foster parents, school sites, public and other community partners, volunteers donors and local business leaders.

At another level, the organization needs the understanding and support of members of the public at large who are beneficiaries and users of the program and services offered by the organization. In this way, the organization can be assured of support and involvement leading to achievement of the organization’s long term results. We call these “partners” of our organization who support our mission and our organization “key champions.” These organizations are our advocates who are visible in the community and help us to accomplish the work that we do by providing support to our organization in multiple ways.

Sleep Train has joined forces with A Coming of Age FFA and our community in an effort to help foster kids on so many different levels.  Sleep train provides foster children placed with our agency the little things that often make a big difference — school supplies and sports shoes, properly fitting clothing, or a gift during the holidays.  In addition, they have also provided additional funds in the form of gift cards to those youth placed with our agency which has helped to bring a smile to the lives of our children in placement throughout the year.

This organization made it possible for A Coming of Age FFA to purchase over 50 desktop computers and 10 additional laptop computers to give away as gifts during last year’s Christmas Party to up-and-coming youth who we believe will be future leaders in time.  As part of the many activities that our organization does for youth, PCs for People was instrumental in supporting our cause by securing the computers and laptops for our youth to be given away at our Annual Christmas Party.  The Chairman of PCs for People, Andrew Elofson, is a social worker himself, and takes pride in providing computers to those in need.

First 5 San Bernardino promotes, supports and improves the early development of children from the prenatal stage to five years of age.  First 5 San Bernardino has also sponsored A Coming of Age FFA in the work that we do through our involvement and graduation from the fourth Capacity Building Academy (CBA-IV), Capacity Building Continuum (CBC) and our involvement with the Inland Empire Community Collaborative (IECC) where the CEO of A Coming of Age FFA is also the Vice President of this organization.

The National Cristina Foundation works to promote technology reuse by educating businesses and the public that technology resources coming out of their first place of use can be given a second productive life for developing human potential.  Through our work with the National Cristina Foundation, our organization was introduced to PCs for People in helping to make our Annual Christmas Party a success for our youth.
