Volunteer Opportunity – EAS 2017 Healthy Choices Fair

Volunteer at the Environmental and Adventure School’s (EAS) 2017 Healthy Choices Fair.

EAS is a choice/alternative middle school with a unique, applied way of facilitating student learning. It is located within the Lake Washington School district, in Kirkland, WA. The Healthy Choices Fair brings together teachers, parents, health care professionals, and community experts for a three-day conference offering a unique approach to providing 140 middle school students with health information.

Interactive sessions and keynote presentations address topics such as: drug and alcohol awareness; emotional well-being; positive social interaction; environmental health; physical health and fitness; nutrition; and healthy lifestyle decision-making.

The Fair is coordinated by EAS parent volunteers who work with the teaching staff to ensure the relevance and appropriateness of each breakout session. Each session is scheduled for one hour (45-50 minute presentation, with time at the end for questions and journaling) with 10-25 kids ranging in age from 11 to 14.

It’s helpful if speakers can make their session a casual mix of presentation/discussion and student interaction/participation. Power points and interactives are commonly used.

If this sounds like an interesting adventure to you, we would truly appreciate your involvement.This year, the fair will be held on Jan 24 (Tuesday), Jan 26 (Thursday), and Jan 27 (Friday).

Please let us know if you are interested and able to lead one or two sessions by sending an email by October 25th to:

Susan Vossler vosslerm1@comcast.net  and Tania M. Busch Isaksen tania@uw.edu

Seattle Tilth’s Farm to Table Preschool Program

Seattle Tilth’s Farm to Table preschool program works with low-income preschools to provide hands-on cooking and nutrition education to children, teachers/staff, and parents. Students increase reverence for their food and health by preparing and eating foods in a fun and delicious way. We’re excited to kick off the school year with an orientation for people who want to volunteer more regularly with us this year!

When: Tuesday, Oct 4th from 6-8:30pm

Where: Good Shepherd Center (4649 Sunnyside Ave N)

This interactive workshop will familiarize you with what farm-to-table events look like and what your role will be, give you tips for cooking with children, explore the messages we send about nutrition, and delve into concepts around food culture.

Note that we have limited space and will prioritize people who can commit to volunteering several times in the upcoming months. The events typically take place on weekday mornings and afternoons. Volunteers help to prepare, facilitate, and clean up kid-friendly cooking activities and present simple nutritional messages in nonjudgmental ways. We also have a few shifts available before the orientation at http://www.seattletilth.org/get-involved/volunteer/kitchen/farm-to-table.

Interested? Have questions? Please email sarahalper or call (206) 633-0451 ext. 138.
