Volunteers are needed for chronic absenteeism in schools.

PARI‘ S WRAP initiative has been very popular. We are looking for volunteers to assist both at schools and at the juvenile court services level. This is a rare opportunity to be a part of a community care process that supports a school culture of belonging, inclusion and respect.
