We are looking for Charlotte's best art, fitness, sports, yoga, and music volunteers to be in person at our Academy to work with our students! We can work with your schedule within our school hours.

This is an awesome opportunity to work with some amazing kids from around the world as they continue to learn English and general subjects. We need volunteers to come in and help mentor and guide these students in various extracurricular activities. If you love sharing your passion with others and teaching them, this is the opportunity for you!

We are a nonprofit academy dedicated to serving the at risk, refugee, and immigrant population in the Charlotte area. We educate, empower and enrich our students with a tuition free, holistic education addressing the whole child: educationally, nutritionally, emotionally, socially and experientially. If you are available mornings or afternoons to help one to a few days a week we would love to meet you! We are located in East Charlotte.

Volunteer must have previous childcare or experience with children and prior mentorship, instructing or teaching experience.

If you are interested, please let us know some available times to meet via Zoom first, which days you can volunteer, and please know we practice all COVID precautions and distancing.
