    Need volunteers in IL

      We have been making great strides the past 2 years to build interest within students for creative problem solving and need additional volunteers to make this effort sustainable for in lower income areas of Waukegan (north of Chicago) and City of Chicago.  We are also building participation in Central Illinois. We especially need bilingual (Spanish/English) help.  The organization is www.destinationimagination.org .

          if you have over 35 years in the system it does not make actual sense to defer.
          Please other things to do with your life.  No one indispensable ever in a large organization.  You might have more infuence on the outside with your inside experience, act as an occasional consultant, enjoy life more,etc. john

              Pehaps you misunderstood the basics of DI from the website.  Our organization is supported by over 35,000 volunteers around the world in a grass roots way.  The office staff is tiny.  What we do at the local level is essential for the program.  To see the transformation of the kids is what keeps the volunteeers coming back.
