  • UPDATE: Debbie will create a SignUp Genius with Volunteer Corp needs (Send the week of the 29th). Note from Joe: This is easier said than done.  What should it say? What is the “description” and “responsibilities” of each job?  What is the commitment time frame for each job – the school year? Should it be one big “jobs” sign up or should it be a few that come out with one or two jobs over the next few weeks?  We (as a group) need to be more specific about this for Debbie or she will not be able to put this out.
