The school year is almost over and here comes the hot summer months. For most of the students, summer means spending the whole day in front of the computer or television, others spend it playing under the sun, in the pool, or hang out with friends. Better yet, enroll in a summer class or visit a relative. Have you planned on how you’re going to spend your summer yet? If still undecided, why not spend your summer a little different or should I say, worthwhile.
Scottsdale Volunteer Programs is being offered for everyone this summer. It is the city’s mission to cultivate citizen trust by fostering and practicing open and responsive government and protecting livability, neighborhoods, and enhancing neighborhoods.
