Puppet show - Arts Class
This was taken during our Wednesday Art Class.

We are looking for volunteers who would be able to help youth with their homework. We generally need volunteers between the hours of 8 AM and 10 PM 7 days a week. We are looking for volunteers to help kids with their homework, academics and playing games like scrabble and Chess. Our kids range in age between 5 and 17 years old and need help in everything from basic math and reading and writing all the way up to Chemistry and Biology Regents or SAT exam prep. We are also looking for people who are also looking for passionate about Arts to volunteer to help run our arts classes and those who enjoy empowering women to work on our women's empowerment agenda. Finally, we also have a rock star volunteer opportunity, which is open to anyone who presents us with a project or an idea for a project that can benefit the community. If there is something you feel passionate about that you believe will help others, we want to support you. Our Newest Center is located at 33-22 23rd Avenue, in Astoria Queens. It is just 2 blocs from the Ditmars Blvd train station.

About Astoria Values Inc.

Location:

23-01 24th Avenue, Astoria, NY 11102, US

Mission Statement

We make good things happen. We Empower through the Arts and Education.

Description

We believe that Values are what creates long term sustained positive change. If you don't address values like Integrity, work ethic, empathy and Diversity, the true purpose of education and artistic enlightenment is not achieved. We engage in activities that are designed to help and empower the community. We run an After School and tutoring service as well as an Arts program. We do puppet shows, plays, teach kids to draw and make ceramics and we also run programs focused on Adults, like our Free English Woman's empowerment conversation class, known as Tea Talks. Our Center is open 7 days a week from 8:00 AM to 8 PM. We offer a number of programs catered towards serving the community. We are also passionate about empowering volunteers to give back by pursuing their passions. If you love Art, come help teach kids art, if you love Music, come help others share your passion for Music. We want to help connect people to one another so that together we may make good things happen, We believe that it is only when we serve others that we find true happiness. Our Arts Class's run daily between 4 and 5 PM. Our Woman's Tea Talks program runs every Friday between 3:30 and 5:30 PM. We also do workshops periodically on everything from how to handle a police stop to how to file for a Divorce Index number/avail yourself of city/state services. We are essentially here to serve the community and all that entails.

We have worked with large groups of volunteers in the past and have worked in concert with the City Parks and Education departments on volunteering activities.
