Volunteer Center of the Redwoods is stepping up its SHARE program within Del Norte County Schools.

The SHARE Program includes classroom volunteers, the Pen Pal Program and now, Resource Speakers.

Resource Speakers give presentations to groups of students on a variety of topics. They may use slides, maps or artifacts to enhance classroom studies. They respond to the request of teachers to help make their curriculum come alive.

The community includes musicians, beekeepers, potters, geologists, botanists and oceanographers. We have world travelers and people who could share experiences of World War II with history classes.

If you have experience or expertise you'd like to share, consider becoming a Resource Speaker and help children learn to love learning.
