Getting Youth Involved: Stories from Adults
Marilyn Chisolm, of Columbia, SC, U.S.
We've been hearing from many adults working with youth who want to share their stories.
Marilyn Chisolm, 49, of Columbia, SC, oversees her ministry's chapter of GoGirlGo!, a national initiative of the Women's Sports Foundation to improve girls' health and self-esteem through physical activity.
Glenn Shockley, of Albuquerque, NM U.S.
Delivery driver Charles Glenn Shockley, 57, invented the field game of terfball, "designed to have a lot of participants and be non-contact and co-ed so everyone can play." For the last 15 years he has volunteered with Rio Rancho Parks and Recreation to teach, play, and referee terfball games for local children and youth.
