Help Elementary School Students in Stoughton and Norfolk
1 person is interested
Norfolk County RSVP invites adult volunteers age 55+ to join RSVP and participate in its county-wide Elementary School Partner Program. Volunteers are matched with host teachers in elementary school classrooms (K-5) to assist in providing one-on-one and small group support for young learners who need extra attention, typically in reading or math. (Other volunteer opportunities such as art, music, science, and library support may also be available in some schools.) RSVP welcomes caring adults with a range of backgrounds, life experiences, and expertise who want to make a difference in the lives of children. Whether you have never assisted in a classroom before or are a recently retired teacher, we're interested in talking to you about becoming a school volunteer for this coming fall.
RSVP partners with 17 elementary schools in the following towns and cities: Braintree, Dedham, N eedham, Norfolk, Randolph, Sharon, Stoughton, Walpole, and Weymouth. We make every effort to match volunteers with schools/classroom assignments based on individual preferences (e.g., town, classroom role, availability). School volunteers are asked to commit to a minimum of 1 hour per week throughout the school year.
A CORI background check and an in-person interview with one of the RSVP staff is required for all interested school volunteers. In addition,
two 2.5-hour classroom training and orientation sessions are required for all new school volunteers in order to facilitate a smooth transition into the classroom.
Norfolk County RSVP is part of Senior Corps, a national organization committed to community service and volunteerism at a national and local level.
We'll work with your schedule.
