Communities In Schools Looking For Volunteers
10/23/2013

Communities In Schools of Southwest Kansas is hosting its first Liberal Reality U event at Liberal High School on Tuesday, November 12th.  We are excited to bring this financial literacy simulation to life at Liberal High School and we hope you can join us as a volunteer.  We will need up to 50 volunteers throughout the day to man the booths as the students come around to make financial decisions on housing, insurance, transportation, food, childcare and so on.  These decision will be based on a computer generated profile that they help create but that is also tied to their high school gpa.

 

We will have four shifts for volunteers that day and would welcome your help for one, two or even three or four shifts.  Please let me know if you can help asap.  Thanks!!!
