Dallas Public Library Volunteers

August 18, 2015

The Audelia Road Library has a bustling after-school hour, and we are looking for college students to volunteer to help us out with our Awesome After-School Activities.

Every school day, we have between 10 and 25 elementary aged kids who wait at the library.   In response to this, we’d like to offer STEAM activities and after-school homework help.  Unfortunately for us, we just don’t have enough people to implement this kind of program and do it well.  It would be a great opportunity for Education undergrads to gain some hands-on experience working with kids.

This school year, the Audelia Road Library has partnered with Equal Hearts to provide an after-school snack 5 days a week.  We’ll be offering after-school activities on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and hopefully having non-library run programs on Wednesdays.

If this is something you think your students would be interested in, please send them our way.  We could use all the help we can get.  Giving kids something engaging to do after school makes our neighborhood better.

January 12, 2015

Jason Witten, professional football player for the Dallas Cowboys, is hosting a football camp on May 16th and 17th and we are looking for students interested in a sports career to volunteer at our event.

Providing local students with an opportunity to work at our camps is something that we at ProCamps value. We use these student volunteers to produce successful camps throughout the country. When the students volunteer with us they are given the chance to receive real world experience in the sports industry. A ProCamps volunteer opportunity gives the students a chance to experience a part of the sports world that is not often spoken about. To give you an idea of what our camps entail I’ve included this video: https://vimeo.com/84189795 password: procamps

Attached is a document that has a little more detail in regards to the Jason Witten ProCamps volunteer opportunity.  We would be very appreciative if you could pass on this information to any students who might be interested in creating an unforgettable experience for our campers.
