About

East End House’s Middle School Program serves more than 70 youth at the Putnam Avenue Upper School in a comprehensive afterschool program. Our philosophy is to inspire leadership through youth-designed initiatives; empower youth to create their own learning experiences through project-based learning; and utilize the unique talents and interests of the staff to create an environment that allows for free expression of ideas and concerns.

We are looking for volunteers that are interested in engaging youth in after school Enrichment Activities and Clubs. We provide students diverse opportunities to learn about different fields of interest, develop their skills and talents, and express themselves. Some opportunities have included: coding classes, photo-journalism workshops, game-based genetics learning program, podcasting club, and many more!

Volunteers assist staff in delivering these activities and exploring them with youth. Volunteers' presence help give more individualized attention to underserved youth, while their support as a caring and engaged adult provides positive relationships that help them grow.

Enrichment Time is Monday through Friday from 4:30-5:30pm. Individuals interested in making a difference in youths' lives while also having fun are encouraged to apply!
