LOOKING FOR YOU!

If you are a dedicated person who loves working with kids After-School with Pomona Hope is looking for you! Our After School Program is in need of volunteers who can help kids (grades K-12th) with their homework and guide our kids (K-8) through their various workshops throughout the day. We work with an under-resourced population and love having people from all backgrounds mentor the kids and help them understand other points of view. Please click on the link for additional information: http://www.pomonahope.org/join-us/volunteer/

ABOUT POMONA HOPE

We are a community center in the City of Pomona, California dedicated to forming local partnerships and holistic programs that cultivate meaningful relationships and empower people of all backgrounds, particularly at-promise youth and their families, to work together toward personal and community transformation. Our main program to do this is our after-school program during the regular school year and a summer enrichment program in the summer, where we serve K-12th grade students for free, Monday thru Thursday. At these programs, kids have a strictly structured schedule, where they receive a meal, homework help/study time, and an enrichment workshop.

These workshops may include (depending on age group and day):

  • Gym Games/Dance
  • STEM
  • Garden
  • Art
  • Language Arts Enrichment
  • Reading Groups
  • Bible Study
  • Homework Help

In the summer program, the structure is very similar with the exception of homework help/study time. Instead, kids receive a variety of educational workshops along with fun activities and field trips. Volunteers are encouraged to commit to at least one consistent day per week (Mon, Tues. & Thurs 2:45-5:30 pm & Wed. 1:45 pm-5:30 pm). Volunteer responsibilities consist of assisting kids with homework, projects during their workshops, and other activities offered in the program. We also have opportunities to be workshop leaders if you have a special skill or subject you would like to teach (i.e., STEM, art, dance, etc.). This opportunity gives you experience working with children in an after-school program setting as well as teaching and lesson planning. For high school students, it provides a great community service opportunity.

Requirements to volunteer are:

  1. Watch a volunteer training video, take a quiz based on the video, and fill out a contact/availability form
  2. Complete a live scan (fingerprinting)
  3. Sign and return a volunteer promise
  4. Sign and return a COVID-19 Waiver


* Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, volunteers are required to wear a mask at all times and maintain appropriate social distance. Volunteers are also highly encouraged to be vaccinated for COVID-19 prior to volunteering with Pomona Hope.
