26 people are interested
Do you have 1 or 2 hours per week to spare on a regular basis? Would you like to help a teacher or students in a Cambridge public school by providing support in the classroom?
Elementary school classroom volunteers can focus on a particular subject, such as Writers' Workshop or mathematics. Cambridge School Volunteers provides specialized training. Volunteers might also choose a role that support a teacher's goals for the classroom. For example, a volunteer may set up a play area that was a "Veterinary Clinic", based on the curriculum in that kindergarten and books that the children enjoyed.
High school classroom volunteers are needed for particular subjects that are taught at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School Middle school classroom roles vary by teacher request.
CSV staff carefully matches you to needs in the schools and offers a placement also based on on your interests and availability, following a background check which is initiated when you attend our required orientation.
