There are many ways to volunteer for MANGO. The most valuable way to help out is to help write curriculum for the different grade levels. You can get involved with writing suggested guidelines for specific subjects, grade levels, or both.
Volunteers can provide links to improve the Facebook page and scholarly resources that we can use for the website. Furthermore, people can also create educational videos for YouTube and proposals of programs for schools to use in order to utilize MANGO.
We are looking for volunteers who are willing to put out the word to promote MANGO. This can consist of anything from creating videos, flyers, and brochures to attending school board meetings or speaking with local community agencies about what we do.
Because many students come from backgrounds of poverty, it is necessary for volunteers to be available to collect items such as food and household goods. Moreover, school supplies are in need because these are often cut in education budgets and teachers often buy them.
Sending books is one of the most important ways that we can make an impact on the world. These books can be for college students or children from elementary school and middle school, all the way to high school. Furthermore, we accept books that are not specific to school. The books that we are most interested in embrace the MANGO Education Model. In other words, books that promote a variety of different cultures, embrace art, advocate on behalf of nature, promote grammar building, and help with economic empowerment.
We are also looking for donations of magazines that don't contain sexual content, violence, profanity, or drugs. Magazines related to STEM are highly appreciated.
Just like books, the students we serve need other educational items for their future success too.
