Boston Partners in Education is looking for volunteers for our Power Lunch program in the Dorchester and South Boston areas.
Volunteers work one-on-one with students in kindergarten through third grade for an hour per week during the student’s lunch period. During the session you will read and discuss books with the student, enhance their reading skills with some educational games, and, most importantly, form a lasting bond over reading.
Boston Partners in Education provides training and mentoring to help facilitate a happy and successful match. We are required by the Boston Public Schools to run a CORI/SORI background check on each potential volunteer; this background check is run at no cost to you.
To apply for this opportunity, please visit: http://bostonpartners.org/get-involved/volunteer-application/ . Be sure to write "Power Lunch" in the Additional Comments section!
Student/Volunteer matches are made based on your preferences:
