    Maryland Tutoring Program Needs Volunteers

    We look for volunteers ages 16 and up interested in working one-on-one with students on Saturday mornings from 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. in Riverdale, MD. Latino Student Fund (LSF) staff provides lesson plans and guidance, so all tutors have to bring is enthusiasm and dedication. We have permanent tutors assigned to a student and expected to come every week, and floaters who we call on only when we need extra tutors (which is most weeks).

    To get involved, volunteers are required to make an appointment for an orientation with LSF staff.  Please contact tutoringpgc@latinostudentfund.org for more information, or sign up to be a volunteer at latinostudentfund.volunteerhub.com. Click here for flyer


    MLK Day Service-Learning Opportunity

    Need to fulfill your service-learning requirements? Join United Mission for Relief and Development on the upcoming Martin Luther King Day of Service! We are looking to engage with students in collecting items such as hand warmers, gloves, socks, baked goods, water bottles and much more in order to create emergency kits for the homeless this winter. In an effort to make MLK Day of Service a day ON and not a day off, we would like to pack the collected items to make emergency winter kits for the homeless in Washington DC. In a time where the homeless are experiencing extremely low temperatures and have no place to go, UMR is looking to share the warmth with those who are suffering this winter and make MLK Jr. Day.

    Email bidlibi@umrelief.org if you are interested in this opportunity. 

    Weed Warrior Work Days (Spring 2020 Schedule)

    Saturday, March 28, 2020,  9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. (Whitemarsh Park)

    Saturday, May 16, 2020,  9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. (Whitemarsh Park)

    Saturday, June 13, 2020,  9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. (Whitemarsh Park)


    The City of Bowie’s Green Team is in need of volunteers to help remove English ivy from Whitemarsh Park. As an invasive, non-native plant, English ivy spreads quickly and easily, and is very destructive to native ecosystems. This is an outdoor activity that requires cutting the ivy vines at eye-level and foot-level, then pulling them back about two feet from the base of the tree to bag them.  To participate, please register by contacting Ashleigh Armentrout (aarmentrout@cityofbowie.org, 301-809-3044). This is a great Student Service-Learning opportunity. Children age 14 and younger must be under the direct supervision of a parent/guardian or Troop Leader at all times, and no volunteers under age 16 can use tools but may participate by pulling and bagging vines. Tiffany Wright (Watershed Manager for the City of Bowie) or Kristin Larson (Sustainability Planner for the City of Bowie) will sign off on service-learning hours for students at the event.

    Berwyn Heights Town-Wide Clean Up

    Please join us for the Berwyn Heights Town-Wide Clean Up, which occurs monthly on the third Saturday from 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.  Registration starts at 10 am at the Berwyn Heights Town Center --5700 Berwyn Road, Berwyn Heights, MD  20740.
    Students can earn community service hours! Participants should wear pants, long sleeves, and closed-toe shoes.  We will provide instructions and distribute clean-up supplies, (safety vests, rubber gloves, trash bags, and pickers).  Participants will be given a map of the community and assigned a certain area to clean-up.  Participants can either form their own groups, join in with another group, or walk the assigned area by themselves.   For more information, contact Amanda Dewey at adewey@berwynheightsmd.gov or 443-646-3529 or Diana Agonoy at dagonoy72@yahoo.com.
