The Rye Middle School is looking for men to help facilitate discussions about "what it is to be a man in 2012" for the 7th-8th Grade Boys Assembly this week.
"Next week, during the middle school's parent/teacher conferences, we are planning to meet with the boys for facilitated discussions about what it is to be a man in 2012. As part of the discussion, we'll be screening a brief video clip of speaker and consultant Tony Porter at a "TED Talk"...

We need men to help chaperone and facilitate some brief smaller group discussions about this. There's no prep required, and we are hopeful that it will be a rewarding experience.
We're reaching out to men in the community to see if they might be available and able to help. Please email Peter Green at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will be walking the boys from RMS to Rye Presbyterian, across the street, for the meetings.
