I know this is over a month away but I wanted to get a head start on seeing if others would like to volunteer with me. On Saturday August 22nd, I will help out once again with Recovery Resources’ annual Run For Recovery, taking place at Progressive Field. This event is put together by Recovery Resources, a nonprofit helping people triumph over mental illness, alcoholism, drug and other addictions. Additional event details can be found HERE.

I will be working a water stop along the route; nothing too challenging. If you would like to come along to volunteer with me please send a comment, or reach out to me via social media if we are connected; you can also send me email vreredai@gmail.com to let me know you want to help out. You can expect to volunteer between 8am-12pm (give or take 30 minutes).

inspiredart

As a Development Board member for the Cleveland chapter of America SCORES, I want to invite you all to attend our upcoming event Inspired Art, a collaboration of Cleveland artists and young Cleveland poets of the after-school program America SCORES Cleveland. The original poetry of Cleveland kids involved in America SCORES has compelled over 40 local artists to create and donate artwork to support the after-school health and literacy program. At the benefit auction, students will witness their visions brought to life and artists will experience the poetry on a deeper level as select youth perform.

America SCORES provides unique, creative after-school programming for more than 600 youth in nine Cleveland public schools, teaching poetry, service-learning and soccer to measurably improve literacy, community engagement and fitness. Ticket and art sales will provide students with the opportunity to participate in America SCORES’ soccer, creative writing and service-learning programming.

Tickets for Inspired Art are $75* and include:

  • Heavy hors d’oeuvres provided by Duet Catering
  • Great Lakes beer & assorted wines
  • Free parking
  • Poetry performances by America SCORES poet-athletes
  • The opportunity to meet the artists
  • Music by DJ Bradley P
  • Desserts & coffee provided by Duet Catering

*Tickets are $75 pre-sale thru June 4 at midnight. Tickets at the door are $80.  The location is: smARTspace at 78th Street Studios in Gordon Square Arts District 1305 W. 80th Street, Cleveland, OH 44102

I will be in attendance helping out during the event. I hope to see you there! As always, please spread the word 🙂

 

 

#Volunteer Where’s Vrere? Out of the Darkness Walk, Sat 10/18

ootd

I registered to volunteer for the upcoming Out of the Darkness Walk, put on by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention on Saturday October 18th. The event takes place at Wade Oval in University Circle. The walk begins at 11:30am, but as a volunteer I can expect to be there a bit earlier. When I registered, I was provided with a fundraising page. Although I’m not actively raising money I will gladly accept donations if there’s someone you’d like to acknowledge. I personally dealt with some depression years ago, as well as lost a family member to suicide; so I wanted to involve myself in this walk.

It would be nice to round up some friends/acquaintances to volunteer with me Saturday morning. If you’re interested, let me know in the comments section or shoot me an email at vreredai@gmail.com …you can also reach me via social media if we are connected! 🙂

#VolunteerInCLE Seeds Of Literacy Tutor (New Eastside Location)

IMG_1983

I thought I’d pass this along. A few folks have expressed an interest in tutoring opportunities. This is a unique opportunity, as tutors are helping adult students who are studying to take the GED. A lot of new updates have been made to the test-I have been studying on my own to refresh my memory on some topics so that I can become a better tutor, and it is somewhat challenging. I think it’s really important to tell our youth to stay in school and earn a diploma, because this test is not easy! As a tutor, expect to assist with the basic high school subjects-only the areas that you are most comfortable with.

Seeds of Literacy is thrilled to announce the opening of our new east side location! Located at 13815 Kinsman Road (at the corner of Kinsman & E. 139th Street), the site is an opportunity for Seeds to bring our award-winning program to adult learners on the east side of Cleveland. The site is set to open mid-September, and will hold morning and afternoon classes as well as registration for new students.

We’ve already received many calls from adults interested in attending classes there, so now we just need one key element: tutors! If you’re interested in helping to get our new location off the ground and provide the same amazing one-to-one tutoring that has made our program such a success, please contact me at 216-661-7950 x10 or alexandriamarshall@seedsofliteracy.org for more info. The Kinsman site also features a secure parking lot and building security.

For more info, check out the Seeds of Literacy website.
