The time commitment for volunteering is minimal – just 2-3 hours of your time.  You will work with 1 or 2 other parents in a classroom to run the sessions.  Don’t worry!  We provide the script, the materials and we will give you a short training.

Training sessions will be held on February 12, 2020, either at 8:30 am and 7:30 pm in the Cottle Auditorium.  Please plan to attend one session, which lasts 30-45 minutes.

Questions/comments about volunteering may be directed to:  Alona Trinidad (alonasantri@gmail.com) and Charlie Zegers (charlie.zegers@gmail.com)

We are looking forward to another wonderful Building Bridges Week!
