The Cape Cod, MA volunteer committee attended The Fresh Air
Fund’s annual Friendly Towns Leadership Conference from Friday, February 1st
through Sunday, February 3rd at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square. Over the
course of three days, volunteers participated in interactive workshops with The
Fresh Air Fund’s staff and community agency partners. Volunteers attended
professional development workshops throughout the conference, with topics
ranging from social media to community engagement. A weekend highlight was
speeches by Fresh Air alumni. They shared how The Fresh Air Fund’s Friendly
Towns Program has had a significant impact on their lives.
The Fresh Air Fund, an independent, not-for-profit agency, has
provided free summer experiences to more than 1.8 million New York City

are boys and girls, from seven to 12 years old, who live in New York City.
Children who are reinvited by host families may continue with The Fresh Air
Fund through age 18 and can enjoy extended trips.
