About

The Learning Assistant will work with a small group of students who live at HomeFirst transitional housing units in Santa Clara County. Learning Assistants will be responsible for meeting with students either on a one to one basis or in small groups. The minimum commitment required is one and a half hour shift per week for six months. A Learning Assistant may focus on: reading, writing, mathematics, and science, or in study skills; work on independent living skills, social skills, or career exploration; lead activities such as arts and crafts, or recreation; share hobbies, interests, and skills.

The Learning Assistant works closely with volunteer coordinator to better understand student needs and to facilitate activities. She/he serves as a role model to demonstrate a positive attitude, respect for self and others, and enthusiasm for learning. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday 5:30-7:00pm. Either of the assigned days are perfect to volunteer, but our desparate need for volunteers are Wednesay evenings beacause we're short on staff those days. Volunteers should be 18+ years old, or older.
