We are looking for volunteers to help at our After School program from May 9 to June 9 when we need volunteers the most due to the lack of college student service learning volunteers.

The After School program has two main components. The first is homework help, as well as tutoring in reading and math. Children work in grade groups during this time. The second half of each day consists of enrichment activities designed to expose the children to new activities and topics. The children receive both a snack when they arrive, and a meal after their homework and enrichment time. There are occasional field trips or other special activities.

Program Schedule:
3:30 -- 4:30pm -- HW Help in Grade Group Classrooms
4:30 -- 5:15pm -- Enrichment Activities
5:15 -- 5:30pm -- Meal together
5:30pm - Dismissal

Days/Times:
This program is held after school every Monday-Thursday while school is in session, from 3:00pm-5:30pm.

Available After School Volunteer Positions:
Tutors/Mentors: These individuals are needed to work with a specific age group on their homework, especially working with reading, science, and math skills. They must also possess simple classroom management skills and the ability to engage students in other quiet activities, such as reading or workbooks, if they complete their homework. Tutors/mentors also assist with the daily enrichment activities in whatever capacity is need. It is preferred that volunteers have experience with working with youth and are available for long term assistance.

Enrichment Instructor: These individuals share a particular talent or interest with the youth, on a one-time or ongoing basis. Responsible for planning and implementing enrichment activities for all age groups, based on your area of interest/expertise.
