Longview School in the Village of Brewster is looking for volunteers to help out in a variety of ways. Longview is a unique place, where students are learning not just in the classroom, but throughout their whole school day by participating in both academic and real-world learning.

We are looking for volunteers who would like to bring their experience in the world to the community.

  • If you are the sort of person who loves working with students, there is an opportunity to teach or help out with classes, mentor students, and tutor those who need a little extra help.
  • If you are the sort of person with experience helping non-profits, either through supporting fundraising, grant-writing, or administrative work, there is an opportunity to help out the school.
If you like working with a team of passionate, dedicated people, Longview may be the place for you.

Email us at info@longviewschool.org and tell us about yourself, your interests, and the time you have available. If you happen to have a resume, even one that has not been updated recently, feel free to include it.

We look forward to your joining the Longview community!

About Longview School

Mission Statement

Longview School is an independent, private school for kindergarten through 12th-grade students, located in Brewster, NY. Our students learn rigorous academics, but academic knowledge is only a part of education. We help students succeed in life by developing confidence and responsibility as well.

Description

Longview is a democratic school. This means that the students have direct access to and control over their environment. This in turn leads to a sincere investment in contributing to their surroundings, their curricula, and their community. The school is run by a democratic meeting of the staff, students, and any other members of the community. Much like the old-fashioned town hall, issues are raised and discussed, and solutions are proposed, voted on, and enacted with majority support. By teaching our students that they can alter their environment, we are engaging them in higher-level thinking about their education, their autonomy, and their roles in the community. This is a lesson they then take with them into the wider world as capable adults ready to acknowledge, address, and find solutions for the problems they encounter.
