People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. For some it offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. For others it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge. Regardless of the motivation, what unites them all is that they find it both challenging and rewarding. Turtle Wing Foundation is offering their second Turtle Wing 101 Volunteer training on Friday, August 2 from 11 AM – 1 PM at the Fayette County Ag Building (255 Svoboda Lane) in La Grange. Lunch will be provided to all participants. This workshop is intended for those who want to learn more about the mission of Turtle Wing, learn how they might be able to engage in this mission as a volunteer, and also explore the opportunities for how they can be of service to the foundation and the families is serves. If you answer yes to one of these questions, perhaps you should attend. Do you want to give something back to an organization that has impact on a person's life, either directly or indirectly? Do you want to make a difference to the lives of others? Do you want to feel valued and part of a team? Do you want to spend quality time away from work or a busy lifestyle? Do you want to use one's professional skills and knowledge to benefit others? Do you want to meet new people, make new friends or get to know the local community better? If you answered yes to any of these questions please consider RSVP’ing to Phyllis Fritsch firstname.lastname@example.org or (979)505-5090. Turtle Wing has been providing Early Intervention, Supplemental Services and Community Education & Advocacy programming to children and families from Colorado, Fayette, Lavaca and surrounding counties with academic, social-emotional, behavioral and/or developmental needs since 2012. Annually over 300 children are receiving direct services with thousands more benefiting indirectly through education and advocacy work.
