NSBE Detroit Professionals,
The NSBE chapter at Lawrence Tech University is launching their own NSBE Jr. program on February 6th. This Saturday, January 30th (10:30 am to 1:00 pm), the LTU students will be doing a practice run of the program, and they are looking for volunteers to help. The run through will take place on the LTU campus. If you are interested in volunteering this Saturday, or if you would like to help out with the actual program on a weekly basis, contact Mashia Kellum (firstname.lastname@example.org
) or Ivoire Morrell (email@example.com
Below is the link to volunteer for the NSBE Jr. chapter. Remember that this is a semester long commitment on Saturdays starting February 6th, 2016. On January 30th, 2016 we will be doing a run through of the first half of the activities so that we know how much supplies we need and how long it will take us.
We only need 10 volunteers and half of those must be LTU-NSBE members. It would be awesome if the other half is from the NSBE Detroit Professional Chapter.
For more information about the NSBE Jr. program, check out the attached documents.
