Selfless Self Care by Zero Waste Club

Are you looking for ways to make your hygiene, self care, or beauty
routines more sustainable? Unfortunately many of the products people tend
to use for these areas contain or are plastic, a majority of which cannot
be recycled. Check out this infographic for zero waste and eco-friendly
options or alternatives so you can look out for the planet while taking
care of your body!

BHS Zero Waste Club (bhszerowaste at gmail.com, insta: @bhszerowaste).


For high schoolers, there are 2 primary pathways into Berkeley Schools
Volunteers (BSV), which is a program of the Berkeley Public Schools Fund:

1. Students who can give at least an hour every week could join Berkeley
Schools Volunteers (BSV) as a "Distance Learning Volunteer." These
volunteers complete BSV's onboarding training and then get matched with a
BUSD Host Teacher (at the grade level and subject area of their choosing).
They support online - in whole group Zooms, in small groups, or even in 1:1
breakouts. They might also help their Host Teacher review students'
asynchronous work. The distance learning volunteer application is HERE
<https://www.berkeleypublicschoolsfund.org/forms/bsv-application-2/> and we
have several orientations in January.

2. Students who have time every once in a while can join Berkeley Schools
Volunteer's COVID-response email list to get notified about and sign up for
other district-wide projects. Some projects are ongoing, like staffing the
Ed Hub every Tues/Thurs afternoon (BUSD's central distribution site for
tech and learning tools) or joining BSV's Tech Support team (to answer
student and family tech questions asynchronously). BSV also has periodic
one-time events like assembling science kits, or restoring a school garden.
COVID-response volunteers receive about 2 emails each month with ongoing
BUSD volunteer opportunities. Students can sign up to join BSV's
COVID-response email list HERE

We hope many of you can join us on the front lines of BUSD's COVID-response
during this very difficult year.
