12:45pm - 2:00pm
Branch out Transitional Services School
One presentation will be given at Branch Out Transition Program from 1:00pm – 2:00pm. Volunteers will meet with the Bridges coordinator at the front entrance of the school at 12:45pm, about fifteen minutes before the class begins.
We are honored to be invited into classrooms at dozens of local schools. As a volunteer, you’ll get to see the variety of ways we introduce animal protection topics in an average classroom. Presentations offer a lot of inspiring information in a well-established learning environment, and those including vegan food samples make the outreach fun and impactful, as they show how delicious plant-based food can be. Volunteers complete these presentations by helping to prepare and distribute about 30 food samples throughout the presentation. Without a volunteer, we can’t provide food samples in our presentations.
If you have a camera available, please bring it! We would love to get a few good shots of students enjoying their vegan food samples.
For more information or if you would like to volunteer, email Shannon Kimball at firstname.lastname@example.org.
