Do you enjoy working with children? Do you want to make a positive difference in your community? Volunteer to lead a summer reading program with youth in Oakland with Satellite Affordable Housing Associates (SAHA)!

SAHA is looking for responsible and consistent volunteers to help entertain children over the summer. Duties include helping children with homework as needed, helping the activities coordinator in the facilitation of activities in a group setting, working directly with children in games and activities, and helping set up and clean up as needed.

Background checks and reference checks are required for all volunteers aged 18 years old and above.

ABOUT SAHA: Satellite Affordable Housing Associates is committed to providing quality, service-enriched, affordable housing in the Bay Area. By providing consistent, volunteer-led programming, we hope to build community at each of our properties, while offering accessible, socialization alternatives. Our hope is to provide the necessary tools for our senior residents to age in place, and to provide exciting new opportunities for our residents to build community with their fellow residents. Visit sahahomes.org for more information!

ABOUT THE VOLUNTEER PROGRAM: The volunteer program is managed by the volunteer coordinator who will follow up to your opportunity inquiries about an application and interview. Please note that we are only able to accommodate 9am-5pm Mon-Fri availability. In the interest of providing consistent activities for our residents, we ask that activities occur on a regular schedule; monthly, weekly or bi-weekly preferred. Residents greatly appreciate and look forward these activities as well as enjoying the company of volunteers who make them possible. Please sign up today!
