Dust off those red shirts and save the dates for SBC events!

Bring a corporate group. Bring a team. Bring your family. Bring a friend. Bring yourself! We are so ready to welcome our favorite “Red Shirt Volunteers” back in-person this year.

We are still looking for volunteers for our Young Authors Conference on May 24, 25, & 27.

As the school year goes on, we are closely monitoring the pandemic and learning how school field trips and extra curriculars are safely taking place. SBC will follow MDH and CDC recommendations that promote health and safety and mitigate the risk of COVID-19 transmission. As events get closer, we will update all participants on specific safety protocols.

SBC’s Volunteer of the Year

At the end of each school year, the SBC staff votes for an outstanding volunteer who goes above and beyond to support our organization. These volunteers have spread the word about SBC, helped create lasting partnerships, presented or volunteered at events, and more!
