Desert Island Supply Company also known as DISCO, located in Woodlawn is offering free after-school tutoring for students.
DISCO is a creative writing center located at 5500 1st Avenue North in Woodlawn. It features a comfortable, safe writing environment with cleverly decorated maps, items, and pictures to ignite creativity for all ages.
DISCO also offers free workshops, seminars, and programs to area schools and community events to encourage creative writing and literacy advancement.
Recently students from around the metro area enjoyed spending the day with Carla Jean Whitley, writer and managing editor of Birmingham Magazine. She is also the creator of Birmingham Box Set, a blog focused on Birmingham's music scene. Whitley introduced the participants to music reviews and taught them how to listen to music then form their own unique evaluation and critical thinking of different musical styles and songs.
You can learn more about volunteer opportunities at DISCO this weekend at a Volunteer meeting being held Saturday, March 2, 2013, 10am. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to make your reservation to attend.
