I have been successfully volunteering at the North Beach branch of the San Francisco library. It is now time for me to take the plunge and go to the next part of my plan. I would like to volunteer at the nearby elementary schools in after school programs.
As these are public schools, I have been told it is complicated and more bureaucratic. Even if true, as soon as I get my new business cards, I am going to take a deep breath and introduce myself. Who knew giving one's time and art projects away would be so hard?
I am having fun at the library on a regular basis but the children are a bit young for some of my Color and Write projects. Some children have told me they wished I would be part of their after school program and promise to ask their moms to do something about it. Of course life happens and I don't hear back. So nothing ventured, nothing gained. I will keep you posted and hope to be soon posting pictures of happy children coloring and writing in after school programs!
