About

Volunteer as a classroom aide at Foundations 4 adVANCEment helping children ages 2 ½ to 6 years-old.
Volunteers are expected to help classroom teachers supervise children, prepare educational materials, and maintain order and cleanliness in the classroom. Youth workers and volunteers interact with children by reading stories, teaching and playing games and songs, and working with children in small group activities designed by teachers. The youth workers and volunteers immediate supervisor is the classroom teacher. Matters of scheduling and training are arranged by the volunteer and Academy director. Sometimes when you are volunteering, the teacher may be busy with the children. Don’t worry,
there is always work for you to do! Some things you could help with are: refilling paint and glue
bottles, sharpen pencils, sort toys, straighten shelves, wash paint brushes and containers, prepare
materials, or display art projects. If it is free choice time, we encourage you to circulate among the
children. Look for a child who needs support and encouragement. Read a story to a child or group
of children or get on the floor and play with them. On occasion you may be asked to help outside
the class you have been assigned, such as in another classroom or in the office.
