    In its third year, Northfield's Start With Hello! program is focused on the growing epidemic of social isolation in our schools and communities, and empowering kids to create a culture of inclusion and connectedness within our school.

    Start with Hello! lunches are designed to emphasize the role individuals can take to prevent social isolation in schools and communities. In order to facilitate these lunches, we need volunteers. That's where you come in. Grades 2-5 need adult volunteers during lunch time, in what is typically a fun and interactive volunteering opportunity.

    Can you spare 30 minutes to have some fun and make a difference? Thanks for your help and consideration - this program works because of you! 

    Please sign-up to volunteer here!
