The goal of Cyber Marvels is to let children explore and help build cyber projects, while building their confidence and communications skills. Cyber Marvels provides curricula to teach kids how to code and promotes friendly competitions to build camaraderie and showcase talent. Children do not have to compete, however. They can learn to code just the same and volunteer in other capacities during events, if interested.
Animal Rights & Welfare
Artists for Social Change is a strong proponent of animal rights and welfare. ASC's Andy's Hope site goes over what to do (and what not to do) if you find a deserted or injured animal. The site gives transport tips as well and lists some wildlife rehabilitation clinics.
For the poster of what to do if you find a deserted or injured animal, you can also check out the References to Print & Share! section of this site.
Art Workshops & Galleries
Volunteer art instructors for Artists for Social Change instruct inner-city youth on different art techniques and then displays students' work in local art galleries. Check out the Art Workshops & Galleries page for more info.
B.I.T.E. is the acronym for "Believe in Teeth for Everyone". This initiative aims to provide dental care (to include dentures , if needed) to those unable to afford it. ASC is currently setting up the program. Once funds are available for the initiative, the program's website will be linked to here.
In the meantime, for information about pro bono dental care, please see the article titled "How to Get Access to Pro Bono Dental Care" from the Consumer Guide to Dentistry.
