You can register right now by clicking on the links!

 

The Volunteer Opportunities

Building a Better World can also mean helping others, which is why we are having some programs where you can earn service hours.

Teens Read the Way: You can help children (age 3 to grade 5) keep their reading skills over the summer by reading with them and doing activities each week. At the end of the 6 weeks, those who volunteered will not only receive signed volunteer service hour letters but also a reward party with pizza and a movie.

Make Hospital Pillow Cases for Kids: Make fun pillow cases for kids in Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St. Vincent. Not only will it be fun and bring some joy to a kid, but it will also earn you service time and you get to learn some basic sewing.

 

 

So come join us over the summer for fun programs, reading, and prizes!
