Bay State Learning Center, a small nonprofit non-coercive self-directed learning center, is a different option for adolescents and teens to learn and grow. We have students from 10 to 18 years old. All of whom are excited to learn and dig deeper into subjects then public school allows them.
We are looking from someone who is interested in helping us run a, once a week hour long, personality and real world focused psychology class for our teens. It would be very open an flexable as far as what is covered, most classes in our center are discussion driven and allow the students to direct to flow of content. They very much enjoyed a personality theory class last year where they could learn about psychology as well as themselves.
A great volunteer would be someone with a passion for the subject and an interest in teens. Someone who wants to add enrichment to adolescents lives. OR someone who would like to try a different type of teaching then many instructors are used to. No instructional experience necessary just excitement
Classes are small or maybe one on one and do not require any grading or assesment. All the volunteer instructer would be asked beyond teaching is to note who attended and make a very short summary of what was discussed.
We are flexable and love to add diversity to our students education so any type of time commitment you are open to could help. We would very much love a volunteer who could commit to teach at least 8 weeks or one semester, but even one time workshops add enrichment to our program.
