Can you imagine a person who’s willing to work almost all their waking hours 6 out of every 7 days for less than a couple hundred dollars a week plus room and board? Now take it another step and picture 700 people making this kind of commitment.
Go one final step and imagine that these 700 individuals believe so much in their work that they’ll give some of their pay back so that others can benefit from the jobs they do.
If you’ve created this mental picture then what you’re looking at is the SpringHill summer staff team.
Our summer staff, like camp staff all over the world, work incredibly hard for very little money. But what makes our team unique is this – they’ve also given over $14,000 out of their paychecks so that kids from economically challenged situations can attend SpringHill.
Think about it, people who are going to college, starting careers and working for very little keep giving on top of giving by contributing over $14,000 to further help those they’ve already committed to serving.
So what’s the secret to having a team that’ll keep giving on top of giving? It’s a simple combination.
First it starts with great people (and our summer staff are great people).
Second it requires an organization that’s mission and values aligns with and inspires its staff.
Finally leadership’s needed that creates a vision of the impact giving can make in the life of another person.
Combine these three factors and you have a team, like our summer staff team, who’ll keep giving on top of giving resulting in transformed lives – both the campers and their own.
