VOLUNTEER WITH US!

Heading into the new year, the SEPAC is looking for help in the following areas:

- Outreach Representatives
- Bulletin Board Updaters
- Grant Writers

Specifically, we need reps for the High School, Goodyear, White, Joyce, Linscott, and Hurld-Wyman. If you have connections at any of those schools and would be willing to liaise with the principal and PTO and to distribute SEPAC materials, we can use your help!

The SEPAC Bulletin Board outside the Special Education office at the Joyce is long overdue for an update. If you have an hour to spare, we can use your help!

We’ve started the process of brainstorming speakers and workshops for 2019, and we’ll need additional funds. Are you a gifted grant writer, or someone with connections to the financial industry? We can use your help!
