The opportunities at the Carole Robertson Center for Learning are endless!
If you have a specific skill or interest and enjoy working with children, youth, or families, contact us and we will match you with a program that can meet your abilities and interests — whether it is a one-time project or on an ongoing basis.
Current Volunteer Programs Include:
School Age Tutor
Enthusiastic, dedicated individuals are needed to provide children (ages 6–12) weekly homework assistance and tutoring. As a School Age Tutor, you devote your expertise and guidance for one hour each week or more to help children improve academic skills and performance. An emphasis is placed on expanding knowledge by providing individual attention. The Center provides an orientation and on-site support.
Teacher Aide (Early Childhood)
Monday–Friday 9:00am–12:00pm | 3:00–5:00pm
As a Teacher Aide, you assist teachers with implementing classroom activities with small groups of children ages 3 to 5. These include literacy activities, art projects, dramatic play, puzzles, educational computer games, and outdoor play. In addition, the Teacher Aide supports routine classroom activities (children’s clean up and children’s transitions — preparation for lunch and nap).
In Addition to the Above Projects
We have several one-time volunteer needs, such as painting, landscaping, and other facility upkeep. We also welcome the opportunity to work with you to develop workshops for children, youth, or parents in the area of your interest. Previous volunteer-led workshops have included photography, creative writing, basic budgeting, computers, and music.
