New Opportunities For You at Bridges!
Don't you love the warm, satisfying feeling you get when you help someone?

You can experience those same feelings when you volunteer at Bridges to Growth. We currently have three new volunteer opportunities:

Office Assistance: Come help us in the office where you'll have an opportunity to learn more about what we do while helping support the staff that serves families and children. This volunteer position involves clerical and library tasks.

Bilingual Story time Leader: Get a heart-warming dose of fulfillment by doing good! We're looking for a bilingual (Spanish and English) person to lead our story times on the first and third Wednesdays of each month.

Amiguitos Leader: Like to lead and care for little ones? Consider volunteering as an Amiguitos Leader, conducting activities with little ones while their parents take classes.

If interested, please contact  alondra@georgetownproject.org , or call
512-864-3008. A volunteer application form will be required.
