Event description

Description

Thank you for your interest in volunteering!

Do you want to help a 12-year-old who needs some extra support with homework and school work? Do you have Tuesday, Wednesday, OR Thursday afternoon free, from 3:00-4:30? Do you like the idea of working with the same student each week? Then Learning Center could be a great volunteer opportunity for you. This orientation is for new Learning Center volunteers.

FAQs

How do I sign up?
Click the green button above that says "register". Or you can always just call us to register: 617-349-6794.

What is the time commitment?
Learning Center volunteers provide help for a student from 3:00-4:30 for at least one semester, or ideally for the whole school year.

When are volunteers needed?
Learning Center volunteers are needed on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday afternoons, 3:00-4:30, at upper (middle) schools around the city.

Who are the students?
Learning Center volunteers support students in middle school - grades 6, 7, and 8. The students represent the diversity of our city. Students served by CSV have requested help or have been referred by their teacher.

Can I help if I’ve never worked in a school?
Yes! You do not have to have prior experience as a tutor or teacher. We will work to match your talents with a need in the schools.

What about training?
Training begins as soon as you attend one of the informational orientation sessions. Ongoing support continues via training events throughout the year. Some special projects have monthly trainings as well.

Where do the CSV orientations take place?

Volunteer orientations take place at Cambridge Rindge & Latin School (CRLS). Check in with Security when you arrive to get directed to the correct room (Teacher Resource Center.) Click here for directions.

What are your current needs?

Do I need to provide references or have a CORI check?
Yes. You can download the K-8 Reference Form and bring two copies with you to your orientation. Your references should be individuals who have known you for at least one year. Also, bring a government-issued photo ID (drivers license or passport) for a CORI (criminal record) check.
