Volunteer opportunity description

We are seeking dedicated volunteers to provide tutoring and homework help to elementary and middle school students at our South Bronx community center.

Masa's After-school Program operates on weekday evenings (Mondays-Thursdays) from 6 PM-8PM. At the program, students receive homework help, grow as readers, learn about social justice, and learn how to set goals and achieve them.

Masa's 2019-2020 After-School Program (MAP) will start on September 17, 2019 and run through May 28, 2020. Volunteers are admitted on a rolling basis.


Requirements are as follows:

  • Ability to volunteer consistently for at least one of the following days: Monday (6 PM - 8 PM); Tuesday (6 PM - 8 PM); Wednesday (6 PM - 8 PM); or Thursday (6 PM - 8 PM).
  • Able to commit to volunteering for all or most of the 2019-2020 academic year (college students who will leave NYC in May are still eligible to volunteer). When working with children, consistency is the key to success!
  • Willingness and ability to serve as a tutor/homework facilitator to elementary or middle school students in an individual or small group setting.
  • Willingness and ability to discuss topics related to social justice with students, including the Black Lives Matter movement, Indigenous People’s rights and histories and LGBTQIA+ rights.
  • Attend mandatory Masa trainings and events (provided advance notice and multiple options for scheduling).
  • Committed to following all Masa policies and procedures, including with respect to confidentiality
  • Provide feedback on student progress and/or concerns to Masa staff.
