WEPIC Volunteers Needed for Turner Project

The John P. Turner Middle School, located at 59th & Baltimore Avenue, is seeking Penn staff, faculty, students, and alumni as volunteers. For more than 10 years volunteers have helped to teach Arts & Crafts, Math, Reading/Writing, Healthy Cooking, Computers, Exercise, Chess, and other types of classes for adults and children. These classes are freely offered to the community.

Volunteers are needed to teach or assist in the classroom. You can volunteer every Saturday, every other Saturday, or one Saturday per month. The time commitment is three hours per week from 8:45 a.m.-11:45 a.m. Spring classes begin February 1. The spring schedule ends March 22. Take time to care!

This is a great way to get involved and the program director is open to new ideas for classes. For instance we need instructors who are willing to teach GED. Interested? Contact Penn VIPS at 898-2020.
