INTERGENERATIONAL literacy enhancement program
The Intergenerational Literacy Enhancement Program is a six-week program to mentor and tutor second grade students, and is designed to enhance their literacy skills and self image. Second grade students from the Laguna Beach Boys & Girls Club will receive one hour per week mentoring/tutoring sessions beginning in October. Each child will be paired with a trained volunteer mentor. This program includes training for the volunteers. Visit specialyoureadingclub.org for more information.
If you are interested in partnering with a young child and helping them experience positive learning experiences please contact Elsa Brizzi at 949-633-1238 or the Woman's Club at 949-497-1200.
Since 1994, Woman's Club has been hosting an event raising funds for adopted low income Laguna families. For weeks prior to this Christmas luncheon, Woman's Club accepts donations from public (items slightly "tarnished"). These items are then sold at the holiday luncheon planned for members and their guests. All funds and unsold items are then donated to these families at a special holiday luncheon the day after.
Once a year, Woman's Club sponsors an event where local artist come together to display their designs and creations at our Club house. Each artist donates a piece of their work to a silent auction. Funds raised from the silent auction will then be donated to a needy cause. Our last event raised close to $2000 which was donated to Laguna Beach Community Clinic.
Human Options provides safe haven and life changing programs to help abused women, their children and families rebuild their lives - and works with the community to break the cycle of domestic violence.
