We’ve got several ways for you to get involved! We’ve kicked off our Me Too! Campaign
started by Decoding Dyslexia -Virginia. The idea is to host outreach meetings throughout the state in the month of October and it’s a great way to connect parents, caregivers, educators and kids throughout the state with our mission and organization.We’ve outlined some basic steps here
. We’ll provide resources and help you promote your event/meeting through social media. We’re looking for people to host the meetings by securing a venue, a date, and helping to organize and recruit attendees.
Up to now, our meetings have taken place around the Metro Atlanta area. We want to get people throughout the state more involved and connected to our mission and this is a great way to get involved!
Please let us know if you are interested in organizing an educational/outreach meeting in your area by reaching out to us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Facebook. And don’t worry if you can’t pull something together for October………..we want to spread awareness all year long and we’re always looking for volunteers to host meetings in their part of the state!
The following events all take place in October. Follow the links to register and reserve your space today!
