The San Diego Union-Tribune has teamed with United Way of San Diego County and the San Diego County Office of Education to introduce an unprecedented campaign to mobilize 4,500 San Diego County residents to pledge to volunteer with K-12 students.
The “U-T Volunteer for Education” campaign will continue through the 2011-12 academic school year and includes diverse ways for residents to get involved, including classroom involvement, life and career coaching, and opportunities tailored to specific skill sets.
“This campaign reflects our long-standing mission to help foster strong communities and history of supporting youth, family and literacy causes in our region,” said Ed Moss, president and publisher of the Union-Tribune.
“We are thrilled to use our resources and large reach to encourage community involvement with this effort. We also recognize and applaud San Diego County teachers, administrators and staff for their dedication to our region’s youth.”
