Youth Program Volunteers

Academic tutors, classroom assistants, and thrift store volunteers are needed to help our teens aging out of the foster care system with the development of educational and independent living skills at our Real World Job Development Center. If you enjoy working with teens and young adults and have professional/educational work experience, please consider these satisfying volunteer roles.

Academic tutors and classroom assistants assist the Real World Education Coordinator with instructional support in order to meet the needs of students, ages 16-24 enrolled in the online high school and GED program. A 3-5 hour commitment one day per week is required.

Academic Tutors

The tutors will help develop lesson plans that correlate with the students’ academic levels, provide individual tutoring and complete basic needs assessments. Volunteers with an aptitude for math are especially needed.

Classroom Assistants

The classroom assistants help the Education Coordinator researching and preparing materials that will enhance student learning as well as other general assistance.

Monitors for the Children’s Area – Michael R. Zent Healthcare Center

Monitors are needed to assure the children are safely using the children’s waiting area. Reading to the children, working on puzzles and playing quietly with them is a special perk to this volunteer job. Four hour shifts are available 2-6pm, Monday – Friday.
