Summer volunteers receive the unique opportunity of working with teachers, students, and staff during 5 day class sessions. This provides volunteers with firsthand experience in the classroom, shadowing teachers and assisting them with lessons and projects. During the session, volunteers also witness the development of students’ skills while working with them to complete assignments. By helping teachers prep materials, plan the class, and maintain an atmosphere of creativity and learning, volunteers learn classroom management and the importance of time management and social skills. The relationships developed during their time here provide job skills training, inspiration, guidance, networking, and references for future endeavors.
