Young Hearts for Life Volunteers Needed!
Over 200 volunteers are needed to administer the tests. To volunteer at the Downers Grove North screening, click here. Volunteers are needed for shifts in the morning, afternoon or for the full-day, so pick what works for you. This is open to parents, community members, friends, grandparents, and neighbors, basically anyone wanting to spend a fun day interacting with the DGN students while making a difference.
What are Wellness Wednesdays you ask?
They are all about giving the students a chance to decompress and take a break in their busy days. Each Wednesday throughout the year, our students have a chance to relax opposite their lunch period by going to the library to play board games, listen to music, color (yes, color!!) or engage in other stress-free activities. This is made possible because of parent volunteers, who serve as an extra pair of eyes and are present at a time when teachers can't be.
Three 50-minute shifts are available each Wednesday. If you are a busy parent but want to help out in some way, this is the perfect opportunity for you! Use the link above to sign up!
