Business volunteers needed for classroom project

April 24, 2013 

The Manatee Chamber of Commerce needs more than 140 volunteers to help present its Project T.E.A.C.H. program at all area elementary schools May 10.

Project T.E.A.C.H. (Teach Everyone About Career Horizons) is designed to increase career awareness among 4th grade students and to stress the importance of first impressions. For many students, this is the first time they have had a business volunteer in their classroom.

The program begins at 7:30 a.m. with a volunteer orientation breakfast at Freedom Village Retirement Community, sponsored by Manatee Education Foundation. Volunteers then travel to their assigned school and spend an hour, from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., with the students.

For more information, or to volunteer, contact Jahna Leinhauser at 748-4842, ext. 172, or email at
