The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
MADD Missouri’s Power of Parents program is a great opportunity to explore your talents. The program is our statewide effort to educate parents about the positive impact they can have on their teens and pre-teens' decisions about drinking. We have lots of interested schools in the St. Louis metro area and are scheduling quite a few presentations in the months ahead. We’re looking for volunteers to be trained as facilitators to lead the 30 minute PowerPoint presentation. Facilitators complete a 3-4 hour training and are then able to speak at Power of Parents events. We have great need particularly in the St. Louis and Jefferson City areas.
If you’re interested in public speaking and would like to become a facilitator, please contact the Program Manager Rebecca.Haley@madd.org
