Volunteer Opportunities for 2020!

Friendly Faces needed ...

Over the next few months, we'll be highlighting volunteer opportunities where we could use your help! Times and roles vary so you're bound to find something that fits your schedule and interests!

Our first opportunity is for LSS Ambassadors.

  • If you want to represent LSS in our community and like being the face and voice of our organization, like attending meet 'n greets and making guests feel welcome - then this opportunity is for you.
  • You'll need knowledge of our programs, which is easy for alumni. If you need a refresher, we can do that, too. All we need is for you to commit to helping out at several events and being an annual donor to LSS. That's it.

The next Ambassadors' class begins in January. If you'd like to apply or have more questions, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


Grit: The Power of Passion and Perserverance: A high-flying consultant turned math teacher quickly realized that IQ wasn't the only thing separating the successful students from those who struggled. Here, she explains her theory of "grit" as a predictor of success.
Each month we post a video current LSS classes are watching, so whether we're emerging or experienced leaders, we can all benefit and learn together.
