Over the years, many schools have had projects a part of our Love Modesto Volunteer Day, but they’ve been mainly manual labor type projects. As we have talked with many principals and administrators, we discovered that the biggest need our schools have is for ongoing mentors and volunteers helping in the classroom, etc.
Students need role models in their lives who tell them, “I am proud of you”, “You are doing a great job” and “I believe in you”. Unfortunately, so many kids today are not getting enough of this encouragement and it has a devastating impact on their lives.
Following the lead of school volunteer efforts around the country, we present Love Our Schools … championing the need for thousands of positive adult role models in our Modesto area schools!
