The Slyboots School of Music, Art and Dance Head Quarters is hiding in plain sight in Buffalo, NY and has proudly served the music, dance and art communities in Upstate New York and beyond over the past decade, on the sly.

First and foremost renowned for their international world music and dance education tours, workshops and private instruction, this grassroots operation has been rapidly gaining a name in the Upstate New York Festival scene with their annual fundraiser, SLYFEST– a multi day extravaganza featuring live music, art installations, workshops, YOGA, swimming and even a Hot Air Balloon.

As the Sly family grows from their humble roots in Fredonia, NY to engage larger communities in the Upstate New York area, we have been simultaneously branching out to address issues in our global village and utilize world music as a vehicle to unite people from around the world and manifest positive social change in our communities and beyond. September 2015 will mark the start of the Slyboots School’s 9th US tour with the SAAKUMU Dance Troupe from Ghana, West Africa- performing at colleges and universities, clubs and schools all over the country.
Slyboots has helped to expose an estimated 40,000 students to cultural arts programming EVERY year since 2006– that’s 360,000 lives inspired, on the sly.

Pitt-Bradford, Red Cross Volunteer Training @ Pitt-Bradford University Room
Sep 11 @ 5:30 pm – Sep 12 @ 12:30 pm
Pitt-Bradford, Red Cross Volunteer Training @ Pitt-Bradford University Room | Bradford | Pennsylvania | United States

The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford and the American Red Cross of Northwestern Pennsylvania will offer a volunteer training in observance of the September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance.

The volunteer training will be held in the Mukaiyama University Room in the Frame-Westerberg Commons at Pitt-Bradford from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Sept. 11 and 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Sept. 12.

Volunteers will be trained to serve as shelter workers for the American Red Cross. After completion of the seven-hour training, volunteers will be registered as volunteers for the American Red Cross and will be called upon in the event of a crisis. After the initial training is complete, volunteers will receive ongoing training every three months.

These follow-up “tabletop” trainings are approximately two hours and include training in dormitory management, feeding, safety, client registration and similar topics. Those who receive the shelter worker training will be added to a list of volunteers who can be called on in the event of an emergency.

Pre-registration is highly recommended.  The training is open to all members of the community; however, volunteers must be 18 years of age and complete an online background check.

“Not everyone can be a police officer, firefighter or EMT, but everyone has something to give, and that’s what makes the American Red Cross a great choice for people who want to help their community in the face of a disaster,” said Tonya Ackley, director of community engagement at Pitt-Bradford. “During this time of remembrance and reflection, people may feel moved to think about ways they can give back to their communities. We hope by offering this training, we will make it easier for students and community members to connect to service opportunities at the Red Cross.”

Jason Bange, disaster program manager for the Red Cross, said, “We need volunteers more than ever. The American Red Cross is facing increasing demands for services, and volunteers can help us fill this growing need.”

The September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance was created to pay tribute to the victims, survivors and those who rose up in service in response to the attacks on the United States on Sept. 11, 2001.

To register for the training, please contact Ackley at (814) 362-7592 or tja7@pitt.edu. For more information on volunteer opportunities at the American Red Cross, please contact Rex Rossey, regional volunteer services officer, American Red Cross, Western Pennsylvania Region at 814-723-6000 or 814-230-3123 or rex.rossey@redcross.org. The Red Cross of Northwestern Pennsylvania serves Erie, Crawford, Warren, Forest, McKean, Potter, Elk and Cameron counties.
