The Calling All Colors spring conferences are right around the corner and we need a few more volunteers. Volunteers (in pairs) will facilitate an activity with 20 students, then encourage dialogue and reflection afterward. All materials will be provided, and attending a pre-conference training is required for all volunteers. These two conferences are hosted by Grand Valley State University's Allendale campus. The conferences are on Monday, April 29 and Tuesday, April 30. Facilitators are needed from 10am-Noon on either or both days. Learn more/sign up: www.ethnicdiversity.org/getinvolved/volunteer
