Calling all Volunteers

Back2SchoolVolunteer_webslideDo you have a passion for helping? Do you love to cook? Maybe you really love sharing your interest in photography. Or you would love to help design a youth community service project. If you have a passion for youth, a passion for serving your community, and interest in helping to teach others, we need you! With the return to school, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Skagit County are calling all volunteers to come & help make our Club programs great. Open after-school Monday-Friday, from 2:45pm- 6:00pm, our Clubs serve youth ages 6-18. All programs run for 30-60 min, and fall under Academic Success, Healthy Lifestyles, and Good Character & Citizenship. We would love to include you!

Club Member Alex visits with Etta

The Anacortes Club added a new friend to its Paws to Read program. Etta and her owner Joyce will be joining us alongside Geoffrey and Judy each Tuesday afternoon from 4:00 to 5:00pm. Paws to Read offers Club members a chance to pick out a book and spend 10 minutes reading to one of these great certified therapy dogs, through Dogs on Call. Club members are given a relaxed and positive environment in which they can practice reading out loud to a furry new friend.

Thank you to Joyce and Judy and especially Etta and Geoffrey for spending time with us each week.
