Ready to make a difference in the life of a child in Koreatown?
Volunteering with children can be one of the most impactful and meaningful experiences in life. Research has shown that every child is just one caring adult away from being a success story. KYCC’s youth programs serve 500 children a year, so your time and energy can mean that one more child will have a better chance in life with just a few hours a week. We’ve found that our volunteers get just as much, if not more out of building this relationship with kids who would thrive with just a little more attention.
Volunteer Roles and Responsibilities:
Help K-8th grade students from diverse backgrounds complete their homework, guide them through projects and activities, support the instructor with overall classroom management or co-lead activities, and provide general administrative support to the afterschool program either virtually, in-person or a mix of both!
For onsite volunteers, duties are primarily tutoring along with student/classroom supervision, assist classroom instructors with enrichment activities, and provide light administrative assistance (i.e. roster/data management, snacks preparation and service) Monday - Friday between 9:00 A.M. until 5:00 P.M.
For virtual volunteers, duties are primarily one-on-one tutoring and working with teachers during enrichment activities with shifts available Monday - Friday between 3:00 P.M. until 6:00 P.M.
All volunteers are asked to participate in training prior to start.
The Koreatown Youth and Community Center was established in 1975 to support a growing population of at-risk youth in Los Angeles. Today, KYCC is the leading multiservice organization in Koreatown, supporting children and their families in the areas of education, health, housing, and finances. Most of the clients served are first generation immigrants from Asia and Latin America. Committed to serving the diverse population of Koreatown, we offer all programs in Spanish, Korean and English.
