Science Instructor @ Bay State Learning Center

Bay State Learning Center (BSLC) is looking for a volunteer who can help a small group of teens learn middle and high school level sciences. We are primarily looking for help in Biology, Environmental science, Physics/Astronomy and Geology but if you are into other sciences, we'd still love to hear from you. All we ask for is your commitment to run the course at a regular cadence for at least 8 consecutive weeks for continuity. If you enjoy working with teens, you are always welcome for as long as you can offer them your support.

Come facilitate a class or two for the teens and help make a difference in their lives. Your support and contribution truly goes a long way for these kids. They greatly value your presence and interaction.

Go to http://www.baystatelearning.org/ for more information about our learning center or call Terry at 781-883-4354.

About Bay State Learning Center

Mission Statement

Bay State Learning Cooperative is a non-coercive learning environment for students ages 10-19. We do not have grades, tests, or specific curricular requirements. At Bay State Learning Center we think that the best and most lasting kind of learning is self-directed learning. At BSLC each student has the opportunity to work with a mentor to design a specialized learning program to fit his or her own needs, strengths, and interests. In addition to personalized support and a regular schedule of optional classes, BSLC provides a safe, comfortable environment where students can work, socialize, and thrive free of the coercion and pressure of traditional school.

Description

BSLC serves all kinds of students from successful straight A students who are bored or uninspired, to students who struggle with the imposed structure of school, to students who are disengaged and uninterested in standardized course work. Some want a better outlet for their creative ambitions and others have a specific area or discipline they want to focus on but find that the demands of school displace their interests. BSLC is for kids who need an open, flexible environment where they can find the security and freedom to succeed without irrelevant demands, arbitrary standardization, and institutional uniformity. Students like this can learn more and significantly improve their lives by leaving traditional school behind, and BSLC can provide them the opportunity to do so.
