Friends of the Sonoma Valley Library is a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to bringing the pleasure of reading to its community by supporting its library financially and sponsoring programs. They have books sales at the library and help fund our Sonoma Valley library branch.
BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS OF AMERICA
The Boys&Girls Club vision: Provide a world-class Club Experience that assures success is within reach of every young person who enters our doors, with all members on track to graduate from high school with a plan for the future, demonstrating good character and citizenship, and living a healthy lifestyle.
SCHOOLS OF HOPE
Schools of Hope is an early elementary reading initiative that helps children build the critical reading skills needed to succeed in school and life. Through Schools of Hope, we recruit, train and place community volunteers in the schools. The tutor works one-on-one with Kindergarten through third grade students during the school day to supplement the work they are doing in the classroom. Tutoring sessions are 30 minutes long and lessons + materials are provided.
I currently run Schools of Hope at Prestwood Elementary and you can reach out directly to me if you’d like to learn more or start volunteering.
THE SONOMA VALLEY MOTHER’S CLUB
The mission of the Sonoma Valley Mother’s Club is to create an atmosphere of support, education, and socialization for mothers of young children and their families. We have developed several ways to come together both with and without our children through monthly general meetings, weekly playgroups, “moms only” and family events, educational events, and community outreach. We believe this club has great potential to help improve and enrich the experience of early motherhood.
