Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
"It's the best kind of volunteering you can do." " The teachers say they appreciate me, but I tell them that I get so much more out of it than they do." "It's the best part of my week!" These are just some of the comments received from our 45 Together for Education volunteers. Do you have 30-60 minutes a week that you could donate to our students and teachers? There are volunteer and mentor opportunities in grades K-8 in all subject areas in the Kennett Consolidated School District!
Opportunity: Mentor for a elementary school student.
Description: The goal is to offer consistent positive support and reinforcement in the life of a young person (grades K-8). For mentoring, you would come in weekly to meet with your student, possibly eat lunch with them, play a game, read a book, or just talk. Training and other materials are provided!
Date: Monday-Friday (you can choose the day)
Time: 8:45am-3:25pm (choose any 30 or 60 minute slot of time)
