My name is Nikki Bollman and I’m an AmeriCorps member at Congdon Park Elementary this year and I’m organizing an after-school program. Our goal is to provide enrichment activities and academic support to all students. This program is new to the school and is in need of volunteers! So far I’ve got one knitting class. I need more teachers! I also need tutors to support a Tutoring Center that we are working to establish in the library during the after-school time period.
The Fall after-school session starts Oct. 17 and goes until Dec. 16. Classes will be offered Monday through Thursday from 2:30-4:30 p.m. All volunteers will receive training and an orientation to the school prior to starting.
If you have a cool hobby or job that you could develop into a class with fun activities for kids, please contact me. Even if you don’t have an idea, but are interested, just let me know. I’ve got tons of great ideas and activities to support you with. We’re looking for art classes, sports, crafts, travel, science, language, cooking, yoga, and anything else you can come up with.
More information and detailed volunteer position descriptions are posted at idealist.org: Congdon Park Elementary Afterschool Check out or supply wish list, too!
Have a great weekend!
