Reflections from Volunteers and Service-learners
Meelia Center is collecting reflections to share on social media. To participate, please contact the Meelia Center.
- Videos reading books to elementary and middle school children. Students may record themselves reading children’s books. This is one way people can serve the Manchester community from home. The Meelia Center will offer tips, guidance, and resources to help people make their videos. The videos aren't shared with the general public but will be uploaded to private google classroom sites through the 21st Century After School Program and DCYF. If interested, contact the Meelia Center.
- Letters to community members. We encourage anyone who was volunteering and would like to get a message to the site to reach out to the Meelia Center Meelia Center.
