, JSMLI graduates have demonstrated marked academic improvement. We focus on academics by making our homework center mandatory. Those who don’t attend can’t participate in that day’s activities. The high school averages of our students have demonstrated statistical increases, and JSMLI alumni are now attending colleges and universities all over the country, including several prestigious institutions.

The James Smooth Music & Leadership Institute is currently seeking volunteers to help with transportation of donated materials from donors and assistance with capacity building. We also have opportunities available for those who specialize in counseling, tutoring and who have already been fingerprinted by the Department of Health and the Department of Education. We are impacting the lives of youth in New York City, and in order to do so, we need a corps of volunteers.

Volunteers will have plenty of choices and ways to help JSMLI and our Empire State Marching Band, either throughout the week or at JSMLI INC hq every Saturday.

Administration Volunteers: Answer general questions and inquiries from our public and private stakeholders. Enroll new students and complete telephone orientation. Type 45 wpm or more, paper and electronic filing, mail merge, and have a attitude friendly to our activity.

Transportation Volunteers: Purchase a JSMLI tshirt or polo. Every Monday a list will be provided of items JSMLI INC has agreed to pick up and use during the provision of our services. Transportation volunteers will, contact the venue, pick up and load items into a personal or JSMLI rental, and return all items to JSMLI. Drivers license and a clean driving record required.

Other: if we were unable to define a niche that you would be interested in through this volunteer listing, please feel free to contact the Institute to inquire about additional opportunities. info@jsmli.org
