Young volunteers sought to work with Woodland students
The LINKS program is looking for students in middle school and high school who would enjoy providing peer support this summer to a student at Woodland Development Center. Lisa Koehn, Woodland social worker, said student volunteers will be "linked" with a Woodland student with a disability to help promote life skills and socialization. The program runs Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays in July and August. An informational meeting will be at 6 p.m. on Monday, June 6 at Woodland.
