Program seeks seniors as mentors and tutors
United Way of the Bluegrass’s RSVP Trailblazers program is looking for people ages 55 and older to volunteer in area schools for the 2019-2020 school year as mentors and tutors. The program is targeting mentoring for middle and high school students and tutoring for elementary school students as priorities, but mentors and tutors at every school level are needed and a variety of possible assignments are available. RSVP Trailblazers, a Senior Corps program, connects volunteers with programs and schools in Woodford, Anderson, Clark and Scott counties. Partner programs in Woodford County include Mentors & Meals and the Woodford County Reading Club at St. John’s Episcopal Church. Senior Corps volunteers in Kentucky contributed over a million hours last year. Nationwide, Senior Corps engages over 220,000 volunteers every year. For more information on volunteering through Trailblazers, or on how your education-related program might become a partner, contact Mark Matics at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 859-977-7396, or visit United Way of the Bluegrass’s website at https://www.uwbg.org/trailblazers.
