On November 5th, staff, interns and participants came together to thank the over 100 volunteers who have donated their time to PSKS in the last year. Volunteers are a vital aspect of our success and help with anything and everything including being on the Board of Directors, tutoring students, doing mock interviews for LEAP, teaching classes like yoga, helping us with IT issues, serving meals, and volunteering at our events, just to name a few. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Will at email@example.com
