NAMI Waukesha is in need of volunteers to assist with registration, helping spot people calling bingo during the event, as well as to assist with the silent auction check-out process. Volunteers are needed from 4:45 pm-9:30 pm

Bake Sale Helpers Needed - Waukesha
Each year on Good Friday, the Literacy Council of Greater Waukesha holds a bake sale at the downtown branch of Waukesha State Bank. The proceeds from the bake sale support LCGW's programs of matching volunteer tutors with adults and children who need to improve their basic skills including reading, writing, spelling, math and English as a second language. Tutors also help prepare students for the GED or citizenship tests. Volunteers are needed to help at the Literacy Council of Greater Waukesha Bake Sale on Friday April 18, 2014. The day will be divided into about 2 hour shifts between 8:30am and 5pm. One or two people will be assigned to each shift. More volunteers are needed for the first shift. Volunteers must be a minimum of 18 years old. Families are invited to help as long as there is parental supervision.

Mentor Needed at Area Schools - Waukesha
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Milwaukee is seeking adult volunteers to mentor elementary-aged children in structured school settings in the City of Waukesha. Male and female mentors ages 18 and older are in need. Together, the volunteer mentor and the child concentrate on academic achievement, recreational activities and emotional development. “Bigs” and “Littles” are matched together based on similar interests and values. Each site’s staff coordinator provides adult oversight, planned activities, direct match support and outcome measurement. Enrollment is seasonal. We ask for a minimum two-year relationship and the availability to meet with the child on a weekly basis.
