Morgridge Center Update - 10.17.10 by Katie Coon

There are a lot of business-related volunteer opportunities in the Morgridge Center this week, including opportunities in marketing and finance.  Get involved today!

Marketing and Publicity Committee

Assist Fitchburg Fields promote educational and hands-on gardening skill training opportunities to the general public through press releases, media announcements, newsletter articles, print ads, posters, listserv postings, radio interviews, staffing booths at local events, etc. Arrange for events and training sessions to be photographed or videographed. Help us research and identify key stakeholders and service recipients. Make recommendations to the Board & Steering Committee for business endeavors and/or modifications needed to ensure our business success. Prefer volunteers with marketing, business, public relations or related training and education.

Volunteer with Schools of Hope

Schools of Hope is a tutoring program which aims to address the achievement gap in education between African-American, Latino, and Southeast Asian students and their white peers in the Madison middle and high schools. Volunteer tutors commit to serving at least an hour a week at an area school.  Tutors work one-on-one with students, providing academic guidance to students who need additional support.  Volunteers can choose, when, where, what subjects, and with whom they want to tutor.
