Early Wonders Family Night
Early Wonders is a program of Project for Pride in Living (PPL) focused on kindergarten readiness and parent involvement. Early Wonders Preschool offers a high-quality learning and care program for children of lower-income working families. Six to eight volunteers are needed for monthly family nights to serve and share a meal with families, play with preschoolers and siblings while parents attend Early Childhood Family Education, and to help staff with setup and cleanup. Dates are February 20, May 15 and June 19.
Meals for Minds
One in six Minnesota kids will not get enough to eat today. Hungry children are at higher risk of poor school performance. In partnership with Target, Second Harvest Heartland coordinates monthly grocery distributions through a mobile food pantry in local elementary schools. Each child leaves the Meals for Minds Pantry with enough groceries for 25 meals and a chance at a full future. Second Harvest needs volunteers to help setup and distribute groceries to students and families. The county has reserved volunteer slots at Harvest Prep/Best Academy to provide friendly service and put food directly into the hands of our neighbors. Dates are February 13, March 13, April 10 and May 8.
Volunteer for STEP-UP mock interviews
The STEP-UP Summer Jobs Program is seeking volunteers to conduct mock interviews with Minneapolis youth on Monday, March 24, 2014, through Thursday, March 27, 2014, 4:45-6:15 p.m. daily, at the Minneapolis Convention Center.
The mock interviews are a fun and rewarding part of the work readiness training that helps prepare STEP-UP students for their summer jobs. By interacting with professionals who provide constructive candid feedback, students gain confidence and are better prepared to succeed in a professional setting. To become a STEP-UP Achieve volunteer register at Achieve Minneapolis. Questions? Contact Emmy Higgs Matzner from Achieve Minneapolis at at 612.455.1535 or email@example.com.
Please feel free to invite others to join you in preparing youth for successful futures.
