We have a need for volunteers on Saturdays to work with students in fun Reading, Science and Art/Math projects. We will be working with Reading and Arts for first and second graders, Science experiments for 4th graders, and Creative Arts with a math element for 5th graders.
The volunteer project time is Saturday morning from 10 AM to 12:30 PM at the McCormick Elementary School in the Little Village neighborhood.
The young students need role models, especially young girls that think science and math are intimidating. Come show them it can be fun and exciting. Show them knowledge is empowering. Come inspire them!
No advanced skills required, all easy to follow instructions will be given to you by an experienced project leader, and you will work with small groups other volunteers and students. We will do our best to match your interest with the grade activities, but due to limited volunteer slots per class, you may be assign to where the need is the greatest, so your flexibility is much appreciated.
All you need to bring is an open mind and kindness to share with the children. You will both discover the joy of learning and making art.
Volunteers will meet in the lunchroom of the annex building (to the left of the larger main school building). Free street parking is available. Ask for Wilson.
Our future project dates are Saturday Feb 8th and 22nd, March 8 and 22nd, April 5th and 26th. Save the dates and the opportunities will be posted on here for sign up in the near future.
