During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
he Study Centers are an after-school program that serves low income students in and around our public housing communities in Front Street, Kennedy Park, Riverton Park, and Sagamore Village. The centers' collective goal is to help students become academically and socially successful and thus thrive in school and beyond. Over the last 25+ years, the PHA Study Centers have evolved into communal focal points for educational assistance for residents of all ages, resource centers for exploring post-secondary opportunities, a place for youth leadership development, and community service.
When you send your interest through Volunteer Greater Portland, I will send you our application and background check forms. I can also send you a complete study center volunteer position description. These forms can also be found at phastudycenters.org.
Please contact our Resident Services Assistant with any questions.
