It’s spring at Volunteer Maryland, and that means another exciting round of site visits! Each fall, the Volunteer Maryland Program Manager and Peer Leaders visit every Volunteer Maryland Coordinator at his or her site. This amounts to a whirlwind tour of Maryland, and it also involves hearing about the amazing work VMCs have been doing to strengthen the volunteer programs in their organizations. Here are some highlights:
At Ardmore Enterprises, Kat Patterson has initiated a series of service projects at the homes of individuals who have intellectual disabilities.
At the Accokeek Foundation, Casey Lowe hosted more than 50 volunteers for Accokeek’s Earth Day celebration, Earthfest.
At the Maryland Association of Environmental and Outdoor Education, Allyson Bloom has trained 60 Green Leaders to assist Maryland schools in achieving Green School Status.
