YourWords STL provides after-school tutoring and writing workshops to under-privelaged youth in the St. Louis area. We are staffed solely with volunteers, but are working hard to expand and add paid staff and artists. In order for us to do this, it is necessary for us to hold fundraisers to help achieve our goals and objectives.
Currently we are looking to organize a committee of interested and dedicated individuals who have experience with event planning and fundraising to help us organize a Trivia Night fundraiser to be held probably around late February or early March (exact date is still to be determined).
We need individuals who have experience soliciting for product and service donations for us to use for prizes, silent auctions and refreshments and also for people with experience organizing events and fundraisers.
There are other fundraisers that we have on our wish list for the spring and summer, so the opportunity to stick with the organization beyond this single fundraiser is there if you have the interest and dedication we need.
We can work with your availability, but most committee meetings will probably take place either in the evenings on weeknights or on the weekends. For committee meetings, we will probably pick public locations as central as we can be to where interested volunteers will be coming from to reduce travel as much as possible. Please let us know if you can help!
