Volunteers Needed

UW Bucks needs volunteers to help read Martin Luther King Day of Service Essays.  More than 600 students county-wide have taken the time to tell explain why volunteering matters in our community.  That’s roughly a 300% increase over previous years.

Now, the organization is in need volunteers to help read and score these essays. The first ever UW Bucks Volunteer Read-a-thon will take place on Saturday, March 3 from 9 – 11 am at the Lower Bucks office (413 Hood Boulevard, Fairless Hill, PA).

Volunteers will have a brief training and all the support they need to make this a super-fun, rewarding volunteer experience.

Requirements:   A college level understanding of reading, writing and/or editing is required.

UW Bucks Goal: Bring together enough awesome volunteers to read and score 600+ essays in just two hours!  The top 10 in each category (elementary, middle, and high school) will go to a panel of professional writers for the final decision.

What to bring: Reading glasses if you need them!  Pens, pencils, scoring sheets, plus a ‘continental breakfast’ (read: plenty of coffee, juice, bagels, and donuts) will be provided.

Parking:  Please park in the public lot in front of Lake Caroline (there will be UW signs up so you know where to go).

Next step:  Go to our volunteer sign up sheet to register!
