Information For Parents & Mentors
Parents and mentors have a responsibility to inspire, to encourage, and to be a positive role model. The Dragonfly Foundation is working to partner with parents, teachers, and mentors to help students understand the power they have to make a difference in their home, school, and community. We hope to encourage them to support Dragonfly. In return, we want to share information about:
-- Leadership
-- Compassion and Kindness
-- Respect of Self and Others
-- Philanthropy
-- Fundraising, Resource Management, and Budget Awareness
-- Teamwork
-- Communications and Public Relations
-- Gratitude

It is important for students to know that kindness -- not cancer -- is contagious.

Our Student Programs provide opportunities for parents to also get involved in our mission. For example, we are working to place Adult Ambassadors at every participating school/youth group.

We welcome you to learn more about our innovative programs and to become a part of our Dragonfly family!

"Courage. Kindness. Friendship. Character. These are the qualities that define us as human beings, and propel us, on occasion, to greatness." -- R.J. Palacio

Two Student/Volunteer-Driven Initiatives:

Note: We have lessons that students, teachers, and parents can implement, regardless of their geographic location.
  • Student Ambassador Program

    Dragonfly supports and partners with schools and groups to create an in-school/on-site, student-powered leadership program. We seek to help students understand the influence, connections, and talents they have, and how they can use them to help Dragonfly and the patients and families we serve.


    Camp Dragonfly is an annual week-long summer camp offered to incoming 5th and 6th grade students in Greater Cincinnati. The camp empowers and encourages kids to support Dragonfly patients, siblings, and offspring, and to use their time, talent, resources and connections to make a difference at home, at school, and in the community.

There are many ways students and their parents can help us! Here are just some of them:

  • Tell people about us
  • Encourage people to donate unused tickets and suites (suites are especially important for immune-compromised patients)
  • Promote our events (share our events online, distribute/post our materials, etc.)
  • Host a toy, gift, gift card or coin drive
  • Collect used sports equipment from neighbors. Turn in what they collect to a reseller and donate the money back to Dragonfly
