Volunteer Hours Required- 4to 6 hours per month (should try to commit to participating in 2 programs per month)

Additional Comments- Training Session Volunteers will need to attend an individually scheduled 2-hour training session. All students interested in volunteering should apply. These volunteer opportunities are a great chance for students who are interested in education, especially elementary school or early primary school, to learn more about different teaching techniques and styles.
