We are looking for someone with a background in Social Work, Education, or Psychology who has experience working with children and can help lead our team of assistant teachers and interns in building social skills of elementary age children. The volunteer position available is with our Lunch and Learn program at Thurgood Marshall Academy Lower School in Harlem and takes place in the lunch room during the children's lunch period.
