72 people are interested
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Lexington Public Library.This year, homework help volunteer signups will be through our website contact form:
We do need adult volunteers (ages 18+) to be able to commit to a minimum of 2 hours volunteering per week, to defray the cost of the background checks.
Teen volunteers (ages 14 - 17) need to contact us for a teen volunteer application form.
Court ordered volunteers are not accepted.
Homework Help is held August - May, during the school year (when Fayette County Schools are in session). It is on Mondays through Thursdays, 4:00 - 7 pm. We encourage volunteers to work a consistent schedule, for a minimum of 4 consecutive weeks. So, if you prefer to work Mondays, then we ask you to work at least 4 Mondays in a row. We can certainly use your help for longer than just four weeks, so feel free to sign up for the entire semester if you wish.
Homework Help volunteers assist K - 12 (but mainly K - 5) students with reading, math, social studies, science and other school assignments. Patience, love of children, flexibility, and a desire to serve children are required.
This will be a meaningful opportunity for you to interact with children from all walks of life, many from bilingual and immigrant households. You will gain experience for your job, scholarship application or resume. You will receive satisfaction from making a real difference in a child's life, and from helping to promote reading and literacy in your community. You will make many new friends, young and old.
On approval of your background check, the volunteer coordinator with contact you to set up a mutually agreed volunteer schedule, and send you additional information.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
We'll work with your schedule.
