LEADERSHIP GROUP - SPEAK ABOUT CAREERS TO MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS - VOLUNTEERS AGE 55+
1 person is interested
Wednesday: Goal Getters- This is more of our leadership group. Each month the students will create new goals that they would like to meet over the course of the month. They will also meet different guest speakers that work in the career fields they have asked to learn more about, and will complete a community service project. This group is mostly in need of mentors as the students are all focusing on short term and long term goals, and mentors will make it possible for them to stay on track. We are also looking for guest speakers to come and talk about their careers if anyone would be interested in assisting with that!
WEDNESDAY 3:00- 4:15 PM
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE RSVP (RETIRED AND SENIOR VOLUNTEER PROGRAM)
RSVP (Retired and Senior Volunteer Program) is the nation’s largest network for volunteers age 55 and over. The growing segment of our older population is vital to strengthening our communities through their interest in helping others. As an RSVP volunteer, you are strengthening the positive impact people 55 and older have in our communities. Our focus is to incorporate meaningful volunteer opportunities that provide purpose and a way to give back to the community.
