April/May Local Notes: Partners in Education, Dogs On The Town and more

Partners in Education looking for volunteer speakers

Getting young students ready for the future is one of the primary goals of Partners in Education or PIE. Perhaps you could help.  PIE is looking to gain more volunteers for its College and Career Ready, Set, Go (CCRSG) program. This program provides quality college and career readiness lessons to various middle schools in order to help students plan for the years that lie ahead of them. More than 30 Toledo area professionals have volunteered their time to help students within the past few weeks. Students are encouraged not only to follow and achieve their goals, but also to become further invested in the Toledo community. 

For more information, call 419-242-2122 or email volunteer@partnerstoledo.org

Dogs on the town

If you’d like to have a new friend, of the canine kind, to hang with for a day at the park or in your backyard or home, here’s your chance. Lucas County Canine Care & Control is expanding its Dogs on the Town program, allowing people to take dogs from the Canine Care Center on day trips around the community. On the day of the trip, participants will be given business cards for their dog in case there are any interested adoptive families. Anyone interested in volunteering must be 18 years old or older.
