Dear Penn Community,

Please take a moment to view the volunteer opportunities below. Contact me at sammapp@pobox.upenn.edu for additional information.

Become a Mentor: The Penn WorkPlace Mentoring Program is in need of mentors for the upcoming segment beginning in September. Volunteer to mentor a 7th grade student once a month. All activities take place  on Penn’s campus from September–May. Training is provided.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K Walk: Sunday, October 2. The Making Strides event is not a race; it is a celebration of survivorship, an occasion to express hope, and a shared goal to end a disease that threatens the lives of so many people. Join the University of Pennsylvania Team: http://makingstrides.acsevents.org/site/TR/MakingStridesAgainstBreastCancer/MSABCFY12National?pg=informational&fr_id=36002&type=fr_informational&sid=55931

The 25th Annual AIDS WALK: October 16, on the Ben Franklin Parkway. If interested in volunteering, please email: Anthony@aidsfundphilly.org. If interested in forming a team, please register at: www.aidsfundphilly.org 

Philadelphia Cares Day: October 22. Join your fellow Philadelphians for this volunteer-a-thon, when we’ll work side by side to put a fresh coat of paint on classrooms, organize libraries, and clean up play yards in schools throughout the city. https://sites.google.com/a/gpcares.org/2011phillycaresday/
