Foundation Communities is a local nonprofit dedicated to providing quality affordable housing and support services to families and individuals. We operate free after school programs at 12 Learning Centers all over Austin, including at our Cardinal Point (78726) and Lakeline Station (78717) Apartments in Northwest Austin.
We are seeking volunteers to provide general classroom support, as well as help our elementary-age students with math & science skills, reading, fitness, enrichment activities and social/emotional skills to thrive this summer and beyond!
Programs run Monday through Friday between 10 am and 3 pm. See specific volunteer shifts by site here. We can offer some flexibility for arrival and departure within these times. To start, volunteers commit to at least one regular shift per week for the term. During the school year, we run afterschool programs between 3:30 and 6:00 pm weekdays.
Volunteers must complete an online application, pass a background check (no cost to the volunteer), and complete an orientation course. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old.
Our orientation courses will open in late May for the daytime summer enrichment program and in August for the next school year. Let us know you're interested for information on how to get started!
