About

*This is a great opportunity for students looking to fill volunteer hours over their summer break or looking to give back to the community during their time off from school!

We are seeking a few volunteers to monitor our after school program. The children range from pre-K to elementary levels. The program implements independent learning stations for children, to allow for a flexible atmosphere and to foster independence and confidence in the children's abilities.

The role of volunteers would be to monitor and interact with the children, and be available regularly for the sessions.

The current after school program schedule is M/W 3:30 - 5 PM.

This volunteer role would be a great opportunity for individuals studying to become teachers and anyone with experience/interest in child care.

Duties:

  • Be a positive example and role model to the young people in our program
  • Act as a resource and guide, help the youth learn how to find resources and information
  • Work closely with Eden staff and report on any issues or get support when needed
  • Respect that the youth may not share your lifestyles, values, or goals
Skills:
  • Previous teaching or tutoring experience is preferred but not required
  • Must have excellent interpersonal skills and a positive personality and demeanor

Benefit:

Volunteer Monitors will gain insight into the life of a young person, an increase in their own skills and training, as well as the reward and satisfaction that comes from helping a young person excel academically and gain more confidence.

Time commitment:

Tutors will work within Eden’s after school programs and must commit to at least ONE shift per week for at least four months, on either Mondays or Wednesdays from 3:30pm-5pm
