Do you enjoy working with school age children and teens? If you do we have a great opportunity as the volunteer Homework Zone Program Coordinator. The North Natomas Library hosts an after school homework program every Thursday, from 3:30 to 5pm. Local teens act as coaches to elementary and high school students who drop in to get help with their school work. The Program Coordinator is responsible for maintaining a welcoming place for students to do their homework, providing general oversight and direction for the program which includes room logistics (set up/clean up) ensuring teen coaches are matched with students and ensuring homework zone attendance records are completed. The Homework Zone follows the school calendar observing school closures for holidays and breaks. We request a commitment through the end of the current school year or May 2017.
You are comfortable interacting with children, teens and adults; able to work independently in a team-oriented, public service environment. Familiarity and basic understanding of Common Core is a plus but not required.
