Use Your Leadership Skills to Support Local Students as a Homework Club Leader

Flex your leadership skills by becoming a Library Homework Club Leader!

Homework Clubs provide after-school assistance for K-8 children free of charge. We at San Jose Public Library are expanding this program to additional branches and are looking for experienced, dedicated community members to help coordinate these new clubs.

Homework Club Leaders will occupy a key leadership position and help to recruit, train, and schedule other volunteers. They will also assist with promoting the Homework Club to the public and to maintain records for reporting purposes. We will provide training on recruitment, promotion and record keeping.

This is a perfect opportunity for anyone interested in leadership and supporting education.

There is a 9 month commitment of 2.5 - 5 hours a week. You may volunteer Tuesdays or Thursdays or both days from 2:45 pm until 5:15 pm.
