Sumner Teen Center is coordinating a group of like minded individuals with a passion to improve our community, by improving our youth. We need adults who can work with a pre-defined life skill training curriculum (Overcoming Obstacles) and lead a small group of students (6-8) ages 13-16. Curriculum will be provided via email prior to class to allow for preparation time. Supplies will be provided by the center. Classes are held on Tues or Thursday evenings after 4p and last up to 1 hour. Classes start in February, however we are looking for volunteers year-round.
As adult volunteers come forward, we will create a team that will assist in leadership and planning fun learning activities and outings for the students.
Volunteers are a critical part of our organization. Without volunteers, we don't have the expertise to train students in many of the areas they fall short. By simply investing time with students, you help to build thier self-confidence and social skills. By sharing a skill or craft you are helping to shape their goals and desires for the road ahead.
Background check and volunteer application are required. Hours are tracked via Track it Forward app and we appreciate and reward our faithful volunteers.
Students must adhere to the rules of the center. Disrespectful or inappropriate activity is not tolerated.
