The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The Homework Assistant/Tutor will provide academic support and direct homework help to participants of KHCC's after-school programs grades K - 5. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to work with staff to oversee aspects of the program, including arts activities, recreational opportunities, and leadership initiatives.
KHCC’s After School Program serves children from K through fifth grade. It provides fun and engaging ways to both relax and learn after a long day at school, through sports, music, arts, and gardening. Children are guided to form positive relationships and foster responsibility, respect, and the ability to make good choices. The program focuses on literacy that supports English as a core subject with daily homework periods and mentoring by older youth. We also encourage youngsters to live healthy lifestyles by engaging them in physical fitness activities and nutrition workshops.
