Springville OBOB 2022-23

Springville OBOB is in need of an OBOB coordinator and/or OBOB committee members this year! Every year ~100 students participate in this reading program.

Here are some of the jobs involved: emailing teachers, sending announcements, registering the students, making and posting the schedule, putting up the OBOB bulletin board, updating the webpage, recruiting volunteers, hosting volunteer training...making it fun for everyone! Some work is needed in October-March, hours vary and you can set your own schedule. If you are interested in running the program or want to learn more, email springvilleobob@gmail.com.

Please spread the word...if we don't have a coordinator or committee, the program will be cancelled or will be very limited.
