HELP OUR ENVIRONMENT
Saving Our Unique Natural Diversity (SOUND) is seeking individuals who would like to learn about native plants by volunteering several hours per week as greenhouse volunteers. This is an interesting and relaxing way to learn to grow native plants. We can work around student/faculty schedules - some work can even be done in the evening. Contact Dr. Vadheim for details.
‘Afternoons at the Creek’ - Native Plant Restoration at CSU Dominguez Hills
We’ve got some great plants to plant, in addition to pulling a few weeds.
The ground may be either hard or muddy, so boots or sensible shoes would be wise. Also bring work gloves and a shovel (if you have them) - we have some, but not enough for everyone. It's always a good idea to bring a hat, wear sunscreen and bring water to drink. You will be parking right next to the restoration site, so you'll have ready access to your car.
We'll meet at the Restoration site, which is at the south end of Lot 7. So come, learn about our great native plants, help make the CSUDH campus ‘greener’ and enjoy new friends in the out-of-doors.
Wed. 3/10/09 2:00-5:00 p.m.
Fri. 3/14/09 1:00-4:00 p.m.
Fri. 3/20/09 1:00-4:00 p.m.
Additional days will be scheduled for April & possibly May, depending on the weather.
Contact Dr. Vadheim for details.

Help the Homeless:
If you haven’t seen the DH Dateline article “Sophia Momand: Doctor Gives a Helping Hand on Skid Row,” I recommend you read it.
Sophia and her family visit Skid Row every month to help the homeless by dispensing hygiene supplies, vitamins and medicine and basic first aid and referrals to clinics.
We all want to help, but often we are overwhelmed with our daily responsibilities and feel we can’t find the time to help. YOU CAN HELP!
Let’s help Sophia care for our homeless. Please open your hearts and make some hygiene packs for the homeless. They can be items you yourself would use if you were homeless on the streets and relied on what was in that zip lock baggie for washing and grooming yourself. Items can include: soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrush, mouthwash, vitamins, lotion, first aid supplies, combs or hair brushes, bandages, etc. etc. etc. Use your imagination. Visit the .99$ store.
We are collecting items for the hygiene packs; You can bring the items to SCC 300 anytime.

Learn while you Earn: Americorps Tutoring Opportunities: earn a stipend of $6,750 plus $1,800 education award while tutoring.
YPI AmeriCorps seeks individuals who have about 20 hours a week to spend working with students who are falling behind in Math or English/Language Arts. Members tutor at their school site approximately 15-16 hours a week. The remaining hours are dedicated to training (we give members a lot of professional development training) and service projects. Training is both tutoring specific (tutoring techniques, classroom management techniques, assessing student progress) and helpful for everyone (diversity, conflict resolution, life after AmeriCorps, etc.). Service projects can be anything that benefit the community, such as community beautification events, school mural paintings and food drives.
So besides training, the benefits are a stipend of $6750 (broken up into two-week increments) for 675 hours of service and an $1800 Education Award at the completion of your service, which you can use for student loans, tuition, or anything school-related. Regarding student loan, the stipend does not count as income for those purposes. It is taxed, but does not count as income on the FAFSA.
We will be working with two schools in East LA, four schools in Central LA, four schools in South LA (near Watts), and four schools in the Valley (in Van Nuys, North Hills, Pacoima and Granada Hills). We will need to place over 80 tutors at these school sites, so if you know anyone else who may be interested please let them know as well.
