Service In Action

Life’s most persistent and urgent question is,
 “What are you doing for others.”
Martin Luther King Jr.

The Committee will present new projects each semester and asks members to participate individually or as a group as we all become more secure in our health and safety.

The Service In Action Committee decided to have Communities In Schools as their number one focus this year. This program will give our membership an opportunity to be a tutor, mentor or lunch buddy to students in 16 disadvantaged schools throughout Charleston County. We encourage all CCR members to sign up for a training which can be done online. Once you have completed the training and background check, you can select a school from a list, and begin your tutoring and mentoring in the fall. The time requirement is that you commit to be at your assigned school once a week for 45 minutes-one hour.  If you want to sign up for a training, please contact Aimee Lassor at Alassor@cisofsc.org so she can contact you and send the link for the Zoom training.

We are delighted that Aimee will be one of our CCR speakers on September 19, at 2 pm.

In addition, there are the following volunteer opportunities in association with Keep North Charleston Beautiful.
