The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Volunteer Tutors assist the mission of Boys and Girls Haven by helping our youth achieve their highest potential in the classroom. Specifically, volunteers will assist in our on-campus school.
Work one-on-one with individual students to complete assignments in qualified academic areas.
Act as an additional resource to the student and teacher.
On occasion and as agreed to by the volunteer, tutors may assist with library duties and light administrative work.
Classroom Sponsor: Tutors have the option of assisting as a Classroom Sponsor as well. These volunteers will assist teachers by planning special activities and sessions (holidays, thematic, etc.) inside of the classroom.
Boys and Girls Haven School is a JCPS affiliated alternative school. Our students are made up of foster youth - many of whom have been abused and/or neglected - who are in need of more personalized education services than are generally avialable in the public school system.
