Inside Out Club – Inside Out Club is coming to Pierce Downer! Inside Out Club is an extension of www.iSupportCommunity.org. iSupportCommunity’s mission is to develop kids with character inside and out. They believe individuals with a foundation in character and volunteerism will make a better future for everyone. The club will meet monthly in the gymnasium from 3pm – 4:15pm, and members will be taught lessons that will focus on the issues in the community (i.e., how it feels to have different disabilities), the charities addressing those issues and provide volunteer and learning activities. You can find more information about Inside Out Clubs here https://www.isupportcommunity.org/inside-out-club-in-schools/.
