Volunteer Opportunities:
The Division of Autism Services at Penn State College of Medicine is looking for volunteers ages 13-17 or still in high school to attend a weekly photography class as part of a larger social skills intervention for teenagers with Autism Spectrum Disorders. The program is 12 weeks in length and will run from the middle of October to the beginning of February. Teen volunteers will meet once per week from 5:30-7:00pm on Monday evenings in Hershey.
Prior to volunteering, students interested in this opportunity would need to schedule a brief consent meeting (about 1 hour) with us. Interested individuals seeking more information about this project or looking to schedule a consent meeting should contact Krina Durica at kdurica@hmc.psu.edu.
More details about this opportunity can be found in the attached flyer. I would appreciate if you could distribute this flyer to members of your school’s National Junior Honor Society.

March 2: Read Across America– To celebrate Dr. Seuss Day, students travel to an elementary school to read a Dr. Seuss book and teach an activity directly related to the book.  Committee members will meet to choose a Dr. Seuss book and create their activity.  


Throughout the Year:

Announcement Committee – Volunteers will report to the Main Office at 7:35 a.m. to read the daily announcements and recite the Pledge of Allegiance.  You must speak clearly and loudly.  Failure to do so could cause you to be removed from the committee.


Power Pack Committee– Central Dauphin School District sponsors this program to pack grocery bags with food for students in our school district who are less fortunate than us.  This committee will rotate on a schedule to unload the delivery truck here at CDMS – the new location of the program.  Opportunities to pack grocery bags after school may be available throughout the year.
