Volunteers Needed for GWL Coalition Teen Center
As the school year comes near, we look forward to beginning our 3rd year operating a teen center in the Village. The center has grown from a small group of kids hanging out in the Holy Rosary Church basement to a group of between 50 – 70 kids of many ages at the large dedicated room and areas of the GWL Elks Lodge. The center has turned into a huge success and the kids have begun to rely on the program. The challenge, however, is finding dedicated volunteers for the center. The same dedicated volunteers who were a part of the center’s creation are still running the center every Wednesday. We are looking for some new volunteers to work on a rotating basis at the center. The center is open on Wednesdays from 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. Even if you are only able to give one night a month, that will still help. If you are interested in volunteering at the teen center, please contact me as soon as you can at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling Village Hall at 477-9215. In order to volunteer at the Teen Center you must undergo a background check and character assessment interview.
The 2015/ 16 Teen Center year begins September 9th with a kick off BBQ at the Elks.
