At Orange Community Education & Recreation
Mon., July 29th – Fri., Aug. 2nd
Orange Community Education & Recreation is looking for teen volunteers to assist with this summer’s Safety Town program held from Mon., July 29th – Fri., Aug. 2nd in the Pepper Pike Learning Center. Volunteers will work directly with children ages 4-5 who are entering kindergarten in the fall. This opportunity is a great way for students to earn volunteer hours for school. Volunteers must commit to working the entire week from 8:30 am until 12:30 pm. A MANDATORY TRAINING SESSION will be held on Fri., July 26th from 9:00 am-12:00 pm at the Pepper Pike Learning Center. All Safety Town volunteers are required to attend this training session or will not be able to volunteer for the program. The training session is an important part as staff will discuss the format for this year’s program and prepare the lessons for the children.
Orange Schools Resource Officer Todd Bennett from Pepper Pike Police Department along with officers from Moreland Hills, Woodmere, and surrounding areas will once again be running this year’s Safety Town. This one-week comprehensive safety program teaches children about fire safety, water safety, gun safety, pedestrian safety, bike safety, bus safety, and poison safety.
