Presidential Project for Literacy: President Colleen sent an email to all members seeking advisors/volunteers for my President project that she is just beginning. It is involving tutoring from high school students for elementary students, and we are partnering with the Library & Literacy Foundation and San Joaquin A+ and she needs help because this is not my area of expertise-so educators and interested others, please help me and we are on the ground level currently but have funds available immediately for use. Thanks so a few of you that are volunteering for this, and she could use more for my committee. Thanks to those who have already reached out to help.
