We are seeking dedicated volunteers to provide tutoring and homework help to elementary and middle school students at our South Bronx community center.
Masa's After-school Program operates on weekday evenings (Mondays-Thursdays) from 6 PM—8PM. At the program, students primarily receive homework help, grow as readers, and learn how to set goals and achieve them.
Masa's 2016-2017 After-School Program (MAP) will start on September 18, 2017 and run through May 24, 2018. Volunteers are admitted on a rolling basis.
Requirements are as follows:
- Ability to volunteer consistently for at least one of the following days: Monday (6 PM - 8 PM); Tuesday (6 PM - 8 PM); Wednesday (6 PM - 8 PM); or Thursday (6 PM - 8 PM).
- Able to commit to volunteering for all or most of the 2017-2018 academic year (college students who will leave NYC in May are still eligible to volunteer). When working with children, consistency is the key to success!
- Willingness and ability to serve as a tutor/homework facilitator to elementary or middle school students in an individual or small group setting.
- Attend mandatory Masa trainings and events (provided advance notice and multiple options for scheduling).
- Committed to following all Masa policies and procedures, including with respect to confidentiality
