The Boys & Girls Club of Harlem’s (BGCHarlem) mission is to provide access and opportunity for youth to reach their full potential as responsible members of the community. We believe that success is within reach of every young person that walks through our doors. Our kids benefit from trained, caring professional staff and volunteers who help them take control of their lives, envision productive futures and reach the goals. To reach this goal, The Boys and Girls Club of Harlem has begun an initiative to increase member access to computer science programs. The Boys and Girls Club of Harlem seeks your support in instituting this program and delivering a high-quality experience to our members. Interested volunteers should have competencies in:
- The ability to implement and instruct on the curriculum used by BGCH
- Engaging with students ages 8 and up
Key Responsibilities: Volunteers are tasked with facilitating the curriculum and providing support to students when needed. This includes knowing the curriculum ahead of time as well as being prepared to answer the questions students may have. Volunteers are also encouraged to get to know students and ensure they feel supported by the class.
Volunteers do not need prior computer science experience to assist with the teaching of this class.
