However, cooking and/or working in a school environment experience is not mandatory. My name is Shazeen Sterlin and I am the Program Manager for Common Threads here in Miami

Current Common Threads Volunteer Opportunities:

After School Cooking Class at Schools:

  • Our kids cooking classes teach students how to make a healthy meal while they explore cuisines from across the globe. Cooking class volunteers work with a small group of 8-12 year old students to execute recipes and foster teamwork. Volunteers may even pick up some new cooking skills themselves!

  • We currently have After School Cooking Classes that are in need of volunteers!

  • We are asking our volunteers to please commit to the remaining weeks at a school site. It is important for students to build a rapport with the volunteers and helps to see the same mentoring adults week after week.

  • Before I can send you more details about the school sites, volunteers are required to get a background check in Miami-Dade County. Visit this site for more info such as requirements and locations:
