Talk with a Selwyn Heart tutor, Robert Vise, Lisa Halstead, or Olen Smith. To sign up or get more information please visit Heart’s website or contact Sarah Cover at [email protected]
Teacher Partners: This volunteer opportunity is a wonderful way to support an individual teacher in a manner that is most helpful to that teacher. The schedule would be worked out between the teacher and volunteer. Tasks might include helping with parties, cutting out die pieces, working on bulletin boards, etc. You can talk with Townley Moon, Susan, Flynn, Kim Lee or Rebecca Cooper to find out what the experience has meant to them.
