Volunteer Opportunities!

September 3rd   Help with childcare for Cuenta Conmigo (our Bilingual parent group) from 6pm – 8:30pm at the DSI office (708 E. Michigan St. Indianapolis, IN 46202). Volunteers don’t need to be bilingual, but it never hurts! Dinner provided and activities for children are at our office. 

September 13th Volunteers are needed at Camp Emma Lou near Bloomington, IN for childcare with our families. This is our second time with Camp Emma Lou, but they invite a few of our families to come down for a weekend of fun and relaxation. DSI tries to help that relaxation with a few volunteers to help hang out with the kids while their parents chat with other parents. It will be most of the day Saturday, but Lunch will be provided and carpool can be arranged.
