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. Students at our centers have diverse language backgrounds. While all students speak English at school, several students at our Trails at the Park (78748), Sierra Ridge (78745), Sierra Vista (78745), and Southwest Trails (78735) centers speak Spanish at home. Volunteers with this language skill or shared cultural experience can offer invaluable learning support to and connection with our Spanish-speaking students.
We are seeking volunteers to provide general classroom support, as well as help our elementary-age students with homework, reading, fitness, enrichment activities and social/emotional skills to thrive this school year and beyond!
Programs run Monday through Friday between 3:30 - 6:00 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 semester.
Volunteers must complete an online application, pass a background check (no cost to the volunteer), and complete an online orientation course. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old.
Our next orientation opportunities will begin on August 15 for the next school year. Let us know you're interested and we'll send you updates when registration opens.
