Spotlight on Rock Star Frank! December 13, 2011

Frank is a Seattle Works Rock Star and he first got involved with Seattle Works through a program we run in partnership with Treehouse, another local nonprofit.
Here’s an excerpt from Frank’s personal blog about his involvement with the Men’s Mentoring Group:

Boy’s Group with Treehouse

For the past 11 months I’ve been spending each second Wednesday volunteering with some other men from Seattle Works at Treehouse. The program is called Boy’s Group and it’s basically a chance for young men in foster care to interact with male role-models. There’s always food at the start of each event (lots of food – remember my reference to how much teenage boys can eat) and then some kind of fun activity.

In the past year we went bowling , visited Seattle University, played games at Jillian’s, did a casino night, and played Xbox 360 Kinect Bowling and Dance Central.

Our last event is next month and we’ll most likely be going to play mini-golf followed by eating at Subway!

It’s good to see the boys in the group bond with old dudes like myself. I know a number of the kids there since I used to work at Treehouse and it’s been an amazing experience.

If you’re interested in volunteering – check out Seattle Works! They have one-day events and multiple long-term events. Tell them Frank sent you!
