Volunteer Opportunities Include:
Mentor During the School Year
Volunteer one afternoon a week and make a difference in the life of a child. Our goal is for each elementary aged child in the program to have a relationship with a caring adult (or high school student) who assists them with their homework, participates in mentor mixers and serves as a positive role model weekly. (Or you can choose to mentor one of our middle or high school Take Stock In Children scholarship recipients either at the program or in the school for more flexibility!)
Small Group Tutoring
Volunteer one afternoon a week assisting a small group (3-5) elementary school students who are struggling in Math or Reading Comprehension. Tutors are also needed to work with a group of 1st and 2nd grade students. Curriculum and staff support is available!
Assist our tennis coaches with beginner tennis lessons one afternoon per week. Or, for 4.0+ players, give our competitive junior players some additional match play and pointers.
Camp Dynamite Summer Program
Volunteers can assist on the tennis court or with off-court enrichment camp activities one day a week (all summer), one week during the summer (half or full days) or throughout the entire summer camp.There are also opportunities to assist on the court over the summer during our Camp Dynamite summer program. Camp Dynamite is an excellent opportunity for high school community service hours.
