United Way of the Bluegrass Recruiting Woodford Seniors
The United Way of the Bluegrass’s RSVP Trailblazers program is looking for volunteers ages 55 and up to work with area children for the 2018-2019 school year.
RSVP Trailblazers, organized under the auspices of the nationwide Senior Corps, connects volunteers with area programs both in and out of school settings. Volunteers are needed for mentoring, tutoring, and working one-on-one with students, as well as working with students in group settings.
“Trailblazers bring a lot to the table,” said volunteer recruiter Mark Matics. “People from all walks of life can share their knowledge and experience with students in all grades. All you need is time to share and a good heart. We have Trailblazers placed in schools throughout the county and in non-school programs such as Mentors & Meals. Whether you have a little or a lot of time to give, and whether you want to work with one or many students, we have a role for you to fill. If you’re willing to give a young person your undivided attention, it can make all the difference.”
Last school year, RSVP volunteers contributed nearly 3,000 hours to students in the four-county region served by the program, which also covers Anderson, Clark, and Scott County.
