Yellow Wood Learning Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, builds on the work of Tony Wagner, Littky and Ken Robinson ... so, mentors, when can you volunteer? Calling all taxpayers...

Yellow Wood Learning Center gets its name from the Robert Frost poem... two roads diverged in a yellow wood.

The website has these quotes:

Why not learn more?

Here's a request to readers of this blog:  When a group starts a school or youth activity center in your community, you don't have to dig deep ... just find an hour a month and drop in.  Your wisdom and life experience is valuable.   Many mentors can build a wide and stable foundation for small efforts like the Yellow Willow Learning Center...

So, put together a list of what you have done and send it to your local school or youth after-school center... and get involved.

So here is my offer for volunteering and mentoring:
