"I've decided to pursue the leadership certificate that they offer at FSU-being on council and planning the CR Freeze event taught me repsonsibility and project planning that will help me with the major project that's required for all leadership students"-Sarah


Mary Kathryn Brummet and Adam Smith

"All the experience I got planning and running Chain Reaction meetings prepared me for the work I'm doing now for BASIC, a non-profit focused on providing mentors and service opportunities for young men-I've written orientation curriculum for parents, mentors, and mentees!"-Mary Kathryn

"When I first got to college, I had years of public speaking experience from Chain Reaction meetings, recruitments, and the Teen Convention. these skills led to a decision to become a communications major at UWF, and I'm also giving back to Chain Reaction by becoming a volunteer coach."-Adam


Mary Elizabeth Bush and Carlee Hoffman, founders of New Wave, Chain Reaction's Teen Thrift Store.

"Seeing the Legacy I left behind in New Wave makes me realize that there is unlimited potential for the teens in CR to make a lasting impact"-Mary Elizabeth

"I'm hoping to get a master's degree in Public Administration with a concentration in nonprofit management-Chain Reaction had a lot to do with that"-Carlee


Micah McDonald, Terry Strickland, Jake Bouchard, and Adam Smith

Having never met these CR alumni before, I was very impressed with how well-spoken and mature these four young men are. They are all enrolled in college, pursuing meaningful degrees, and still want to give back to their community. In my experiences this is rare and I'm happy to be part of this organization that produces these types of kids." - Elise, CR Staff
