Boys & Girls Club Mentor
Volunteers provide homework and tutorial assistance as directed by a supervisor and coordinate with parents, teachers, and club members to develop an individual education plan for members. You may assist in planning and conducting social and recreational field trips for club members, assist in organizing, conducting and hosting in-house game room tournaments and sports activities. Volunteers advocate youth development programs in the community.
Academy of Music & Arts Volunteer
Music Academy volunteers serve as assistants and teaching aids in our various Academy of Music and Arts programs. Volunteers do not need to be musicians, but volunteers who have musical experience may have the opportunity to assist instructors in their particular area of focus. Volunteers will work alongside instructors to ensure students have an inspirational learning environment by helping maintain order in the classroom, provide a safe classroom and help the instructor should an emergency situation arise.
