We are always in need of Student Support Volunteers. We would love for every child we serve to be paired with a volunteer! This is more of a consistent role with a greater time commitment, but very impactful. You get to be involved in their lives by being an encouraging and positive role model! Here are a few of the options in the schools and also links for more detailed information on how to sign up:
Student Support Volunteer Opportunities Include:
- Lunch Buddy: Provide a mentoring friendship for a child. Each volunteer is assigned a student to be their “buddy.” The volunteer comes to school once a week to have lunch with their buddy, talk, play games or read. This usually can be done in no more than 1 hour-perfect for a lunch break!
- Tutor: Assist students with homework, study for a test or develop their reading and/or math skills. Each tutor visits their assigned student weekly, witnessing the effect their participation has on the student’s educational progress.
- Classroom Assistant: Come to an assigned class once a week for 1-2 hours and assist the teacher in facilitating classroom activities. Responsibilities include individual tutoring, leading small group learning activities, art projects, checking papers and other helpful tasks.
New student support volunteer – If you are interested, your first step would be to complete a new volunteer application form. *Please note, orientations have ended for the 2018-2019 school year and will resume in September 2019.
Returning student support volunteer – (volunteered in the 2017-18 school year) please complete a returning volunteer application. If it has been longer than 2 years since you attended an orientation, you must fill out the NEW student support volunteer form above.
*Per CMS policy, to volunteer you must be 18 years or older and no longer a student in high school, middle school, or elementary school.*
