Last year was another record-setting year for VFES\’s Publishing Center! Our students submitted an amazing 456 stories, and our volunteers assembled a whopping 761 books!
In order to continue offering a Publishing Center program of this magnitude (the largest such program remaining in the T/E/ elementary schools), we need your help. For those of you unfamiliar with the Publishing Center, 1st through 4th graders write and illustrate original stories, and a group of dedicated parent volunteers help turn those creations into hardbound books. Our staff consists entirely of parent volunteers. There are a variety of volunteer positions available (including typing, proofreading, about the author, titles and laminating, covers, and assembly). Many areas allow you to volunteer from home, while others give you the opportunity to be on-site in school. We are also incredibly flexible – you can volunteer when, and as much time as, your schedule allows.
If you are interested in volunteering in the Publishing Center or if you would like more information, please email Tarin Cataldo at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
