Children’s Programs

Volunteer Application

After School Assistant: Come lend a hand in one of our classrooms with our afterschool program. We are always looking for people to help kids with reading, homework, and assist teachers during activities. Come work with Chapman Elementary School kids and our Project Return program, which provides scholarships and resources for children currently experiencing or at risk of homelessness to attend our program. This is a fun and rewarding volunteer position, and the kids love working with our volunteers!

Homework Helper/Reading Buddies: Our biggest need for volunteers during the school year is for Homework Helpers, who are paired with an individual or a small group of students (1-5th grade) to help them complete and understand their homework. For the Kindergartners, who don’t get homework, we are looking for volunteers to come read to individuals or small groups of the students, which the kids always love and is a ton of fun for volunteers.

Homework Club/Reading Buddy time happens from 3:30-4:15, so we ask that volunteers arrive at 3:15 if possible to help with the transition from snack time. Though the time of day is not very flexible, the days of the week and frequency of your volunteer schedule is entirely up to you, we just ask that you try to keep it consistent. We are looking to have volunteers come at least a once/week, for at least a 3-month commitment, as children learn best from volunteers who appear consistently. Come once a week or whatever works for your schedule. We’re flexible.

Preschool Gardener: Our lovely preschool garden is in need of some TLC. Come help re-vamp our garden space and teach the preschoolers about weeding, growing and harvesting their own food!

After School Clubs Day Assistant: Thursday afternoons in After School are Clubs Day! Clubs run on 8 week cycles, and this fall the clubs include: Musical Instrument Making, Monster Party Club, Superhero’s Club, Paint Like Picasso, FHAS Blog Club, and Nothin’ but Net Sports Club. Come assist a club in their weekly activity from 4-5:15!
