We need more Project Leaders and Co-Leaders

Being a Project Leader is a great way to spend time with your kid(s) and make a meaningful impact on your community. Do you have any talents, hobbies, or things you want to learn that you could share and teach to youth? Does your kid have any interests for a Project that you could lead with them? Would you like to work with another Co-Leader to start a new project? From Geocaching and Tabletop Games to Bread Making and Rabbits, there are projects that fit any level of expertise. Some projects have guides to help you get started or you can create a brand new Project. Email 4hredwoodclub@gmail.com for more details. 

Time commitment is 1-2 hours per month.
