Volunteer opportunity description

East Harlem Scholars Academies Volunteer Opportunities 

After-School Club Aides- The learning and fun doesn’t stop when the school day ends for our scholars enrolled in our public-charters schools! Come support our elementary and middle school scholars in either academic (small-group tutoring or homework help) or enrichment activities (art or dance) in their after-school clubs. 

Academic Tutors and Homework Help- Tutor our elementary and middle school students to succeed in a variety of subjects. Volunteers should feel confident tutoring in a kinder through 8th grade level subjects such as Math, English, Science, History, and others. Volunteers can also support during homework help club working in small groups with students. 

School Time Helpers- Support our teachers and staff by providing additional help and coverage during recess and lunch time or lending a hand with some of the operational needs of the school. Examples of some of the needs might be helping out at the front desk, keeping our rooms and storage spaces organized with necessary materials, or sorting paperwork. Volunteers can also support in the classroom as a teacher’s aide working with students one-on-one or in small groups.
