Canada and the United States have taken distinct paths in healthcare reform. Canada has embraced a publicly funded, single-payer system, while the US employs a mixed system with a blend of private and public elements. Join this team to learn about healthcare systems in the US and Canada and volunteer with various non-profit organizations that provide support and resources to reduce health inequity in Canada.
On this alternative break trip, students will explore how they can be and what it means to be more civically engaged. Participants will learn about critical challenges facing our nation, interact with community leaders, and perform short-term projects with community agencies that work to enact positive social change. Join this team to develop the skills and connections necessary to become lifelong active citizens.
Spring Break – LGBTQIA+ Rights, Buffalo, NY (March 18 – 22, 2024) *Free*

Transgender and non-binary individuals, especially those from marginalized communities, still experience higher levels of violence and bias. During this trip, participants will gain insight into the inequalities faced by LGBTQIA+ community members, and explore how legal changes, extensive education, cultural transformation, and advocacy, contribute to a global environment where every individual is treated equitably.

I am reaching out to see if you are able to help us secure student volunteers for Science Olympiad again this year. The scrimmage is December 10, 2022 and the regional is February 4, 2023. Both are held on the campus of SUNY Buffalo State. Volunteers would be needed from about 7am to 3pm. Breakfast and lunch are provided in the volunteer check-in area. It is an indoors only event. No parking pass is required.
Science Olympiad is a competition event for local/regional high schools, with the Regional event in our area being held at SUNY Buffalo State. I am an event coordinator this year. There are dozens of events/competitions being held throughout the day and breakfast and lunch are provided for volunteers. The overall coordinator for this areas event, the Science Olympiad Lake Erie/Niagara Division C event, is Pat Ballow. I have included her in this email. Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I am helping her secure volunteers for both the scrimmage and regional competition.
At a very high level, the competition is for regional high school students to compete in STEM activities. This could range from a paper test, to lab-type work (Chemistry, Earth Science), or an event that requires building something like a bridge or an airplane. For many of the “build” events, the 7am-8am hour is for “impound” where the students entries are weighed or measured and then surrendered to the coordinators so they cannot be modified throughout the day. Generally speaking the most volunteer help is needed for the build events or lab work. Some of the events require some amount of PPE such as goggles.
You can also reach out to Tom Piwtorak with questions at email@example.com who is coordinating the event.

Honors Student Council Service Event: the HSC presents the Bailey-Dartmouth Community Garden Work Day, in Collaboration with the Tool Library. The event is on Saturday, October 22nd, 2022, at 10:00am. Spend your Saturday helping improve your community by participating in a variety of activities, like seeding, weeding, and composting, while gaining service experience and meeting new people.
Throw on that flannel, tie up those boots (w/ the fur), and join us this fall to improve the places we love. We believe that a strong community is a civically engaged community. We put our tools to work on large-scale community projects such as neighborhood clean-ups, tree-plantings, community gardens, and public art installations.
We’re excited to announce our Fall 2022 line-up of events! Most events take place on Saturday mornings and last no longer than three hours.

The City Swim Project of Buffalo, NY is in need of tutors to assist students in reading and math. They have purchased the IXL assessment software and tablets for students and tutors to use. IXL assesses student needs in ELA and math and generates lessons for a tutor to review with students. If you are looking for a service learning experience or volunteer hours, etc. please consider this opportunity.
They’d like to start the program next week, September 20th and 22nd and continue through the semester into December on Tuesdays and Thursdays. There will be three 45 minute sessions each day for different age groups: 5-5:45, 6-6:45 and 7-7:45. The tutoring will take place at the William-Emsley Family YMCA located at 585 William St, Buffalo, NY 14206. Once a student completes their tutoring session they are eligible to participate in a free learn to swim class right after the tutoring session each day.
If you interested, (even if you can’t start next week), please contact Dr. Sue Baldwin at 716-523-9669 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
