Heroes of the Week: ‘Rethinking Schools’ Volunteers
Rethinking Schools is currently working on two books, one on environmental justice and the other on LGTBQ, gender and sexuality. The nonprofit also recently launched a free Apple-, Android- and Kindle-compatible app that offers reduced-rate subscriptions.
“We couldn’t function without our volunteers and staff,” says Kris Collett, outreach and marketing director of Rethinking Schools. “It’s a huge and humbling contribution they make to our work. We couldn’t have survived this long without our editorial board members who have stepped up in such generous ways over the years. We also have volunteers who are not on our editorial board who help us with mailings, fundraisings, etc. They are critical to our success too.”
Volunteers are currently needed to help with special projects and mailings, as well as those with professional expertise and skills in legal, marketing, fundraising, web development and design. Monetary donations are always welcome. To learn more about Rethinking Schools, visit rethinkingschools.org or call 414-964-9646.
