Volunteering

Thank you for your interest in volunteering!    

Most voluteers help in morning, afternoon, or evening classes. The subjects include ELL (ESL), math, writing, reading, and computer basics. Volunteers might work with individuals, small groups, or the entire class. It depends on volunteers' preferences and the teachers' needs.

The length of classes varies from 1-3 hours. The volunteer coordinator will give you details of classes that fit your interests and schedule.

Summer school is June 26-August 3.

Applications received now will be for the regular school year. A reply to your application form will come in August. School begins again August 28.
