  • Help the CEA teacher maintain control of the classroom.
  • Provide discipline and structure necessary to create positive study habits.
  • Prepare educational and recreational activities for children who finish their homework early.

  • Two-month minimum commitment.
  • Intermediate Spanish.

Assets:

  • Commitment longer than two months.
  • Advanced Spanish.
  • Experience tutoring and working with children who have learning disabilities.
  • Grade school knowledge of reading and writing.

Cost and Support from the CENIT Community:

We ask each volunteer for a one-time contribution of $100. In exchange, you will receive daily lunch, a CENIT T-shirt and the support of a full-time volunteer coordinator. Your contribution also supports the administrative costs of the volunteer office and helps sustain our programs.
