Centers of Hope Classroom Support Volunteer

After-School Program volunteers engage Kindergarten students in STEM, literacy and service learning enrichment activities in City of Atlanta’s Centers of Hope. Volunteers also serve as positive and encouraging role models for students and create an environment that supports social-emotional development.

Candidates:

  • Enthusiastic/Funloving- The children have been in school all day and are ready to play when they come to our class.
  • Reliable
