Cup of Tea
–figuratively and literally!
A DYNAMIC SQUADRON
of volunteers brings a diverse array of skills and experience to the Fearless Ideas community. Some prefer to work side-by-side with students helping with homework, writing, and working on creative projects; others might like engaging with a group of students in our field trips and workshops; for some may take a shift in the store, greeting students and interacting with customers; while for others, working behind the scenes editing stories, creating books, fundraising, or stuffing envelopes is more their cup of tea. (Did I mention we have tea in the break room?)
