Computer Labs for Kids: Volunteers Needed for Dallas!
My friend, Shira Evans, needs another 14 volunteers for the next class of Computer Labs for Kids in Dallas, Texas, on March 20, 2010. (Photo: Shira Evans [standing] with volunteers and students at the Los Angeles class on February 6, 2010).
If you are in the Dallas area, please consider volunteering half a day. I was a volunteer in November, 2009 for the Chicago class and I had the most wonderful time! You don't have to be a computer expert - just know how to operate one - the basics - and be willing to work one on one with a child for half a day. The kids are so great - my experience as a volunteer in Chicago was very rewarding and fulfilling, and I met some fantabulous people. Please volunteer - you won't be sorry, I promise.
Host: Shira Evans
Location: Buckner Children and Family Services
5200 Buckner Blvd
Dallas, TX 75227 US
