HOW CAN I HELP?

Our local corps has experienced staff that gladly welcomes volunteers! We seek individuals with a love for children and a passion to invest time and talent into their empowerment and future success. We seek individuals to be a caring friend and a respected model, to assist with homework and test preparation, to tutor those requiring academic remediation or reinforcement, to assist in computer literacy, to engage in recreational activities that support team building and cooperation, and to model and encourage self-esteem, good communication skills, and emotional maturity.
