11:00am - 1:30pm
Edina High School
Two presentations will be given at Edina High School from 11:15am – 1:30pm. Volunteers will meet with the Bridges coordinator at the front entrance of the school at 11:00am, about fifteen minutes before the first class begins.
Positions available today:
- Volunteer — Take photos of the presentation and assist the presenter with small tasks
- Shadow — If you are new to the Bridges program and would like to sit in on this presentation, please sign up here
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.
For more information or if you would like to volunteer, email Shannon Kimball at firstname.lastname@example.org.
