The Light and Leadership Initiative is in need of Reading, Sports, and/or Yoga teachers to start in either September 2020, January 2021 or March 2021. Join our LLI family and get involved with an ethically responsible organization that provides valuable volunteer placements. Placements are available from 6 weeks (preferred minimum) to several months (you decide!). The longer you stay, the more impact you have! If you are not able to stay 6 weeks, please contact us for our availability.
Join us in our Reading Program as a lead reading program volunteer! Help us manage our library, which offers kids the opportunity to read books at our education center several times a week. Encourage a reading for pleasure environment, share your passion for reading, and help improve students' reading comprehension! Participants will also bring their schoolwork to seek greater assistance. At least intermediate Spanish skills are preferred.
Be ready to get involved with our physical education program! Do you have experience in the physical education field, either playing, coaching, or working as a professional? This could be the placement for you! At least basic Spanish skills are encouraged for this placement. There are opportunities available to help in other programs as well, in addition to this placement.
Yoga teachers may teach yoga workshops to our Women's Empowerment Program participants as well as to our Teen Program participants, if schedule allows. Prior experience teaching yoga is required. Intermediate Spanish is strongly encouraged, specifically Yoga terminology! 12 weeks' commitment in exchange for a generous discount off of the program fees! Volunteers may participate in other programs such as art, English, chess, sports, reading, math and more, following the volunteers' interests!
OPEN TO IDEAS!
Is there something that isn't listed above, but you have a ton of experience and passion about? Let us know! We are always open to ideas! We have had theater classes, dance classes and more in the past. Keep in mind that you would have to build your own curriculum, and we ask that you stay for the duration of cycle to fully implement your class and ideas!
We are a LOW COST, grassroots organization providing hands-on, high impact volunteer opportunities. Come help us out and be part of something great!
