Dedicated to the economic and academic empowerment for all in our community, Firebirds are a community of volunteers who understand the power and influence action can have in inspiring and creating sustainable positive change in the lives of others. Providing their talent, time, and resources to the accomplishment of our shared mission in equal opportunity, personal responsibility, and the endless potential of others.
Why are we called Firebirds?
The Phoenix, or Firebird, is a mythical creature recognized in nearly every ancient culture. In ancient Egypt, Greece, Japan and China, the Phoenix was powerful, and not only represented second chances, the energy of the sun, and rising from the ashes, but also the values of virtue, duty, compassion, and trust. There is no better image to represent the students, staff, and volunteers of KANSEL.
