    We are reaching out again as we are still in desperate need for volunteers for our 2018 Mayfair on 5/19 from 11-3.  Sign up blocks are in one hour increments and can be signed up for through the link below.  Thank you so much.  Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

    West Hanover Mayfair 2018 Volunteers

    I would like to inform you of a volunteer opportunity that may be of interest to students at your school. 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 beginners photography class as part of a larger social skills intervention for teenagers with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Teen volunteers will meet once per week from 5:30-7:00pm on Wednesday evenings in Hershey.  The service learning experience is an excellent opportunity for high school students interested in a health-related field such as psychology or special education.
    The next 12 week group will begin Tuesday April 10th! Volunteers can join anytime.
    Interested individuals seeking more information about this program should contact socialskills@pennstatehealth.psu.edu
    More details about this opportunity can be found in the attached flyers.  I would appreciate if you could distribute this flyer to members of your student body and or any interested individuals.
