Committee Chair Openings

Want to get involved with HOP next year? HOP has several Committee Chair openings that are described below. Please reach out to Dayna Buckley daynabuckley@hotmail.com or Nalini Luthra nluthra647@aol.com if you would like to Chair/Co-Chair any of these programs or have questions.

BOKS:
Co-chair with Anne Yazdani who has been doing this for several years. BOKS (Build Our Kids’ Success) is a volunteer-run, fun, before-school physical activity program for kids. Each session lasts 6 weeks and meets 2 days per week for 45 minutes. Some of the activities include running, jumping, hopping, hula hooping, learning new skills and so much more!
Cultural Arts:
Coordinators are responsible for booking and requesting payment for grade-level, curriculum-based, cultural enrichment activities. This includes communication with teachers, administration (as necessary), HOP Treasurer, and artists or their agents. With remaining budget, coordinators should attend Young Audiences of Massachusetts showcases and meetings with fellow Cultural Arts Coordinators through established networks to preview and book artists and authors for all school meetings and school visits. For all events, coordinators must stay within budget and ensure that events are communicated to school administrators and HOP so they appear on school and HOP calendars.
