Riveredge has seen unprecedented enrollment in our Homeschool Programs (which we’re so pleased about!). This means that we need more helpful volunteers than we’ve ever needed in previous years. If you’re involved in education, or have been an educator, or have a passion for the outdoors and learning, we need your help!
Main Homeschool Volunteer Responsibilities
- Helping to prepare and set-up the day’s equipment.
- Helping to check the students in and helping with “ice-breakers” or crafts.
- Watching the students before, after, and during the Homeschool Ed-Ventures program to
foster safety, kindness, and respect.
- Working with small groups of students during activities.
- Assisting students who may need more one-on-one attention.
- Having fun!
Current Schedule of Volunteers Needed
Our current volunteer needs are for the following groups. Priorities would be for younger-aged groups.
Monday: Dragonflies group (4K-K) with Kacey – two volunteers needed
Monday: Monarchs group (1st-2nd) with Molli – one volunteer needed
Monday: Sturgeon group (5th-7th) with Nikki – one volunteer preferred
What Homeschool Volunteers Need to Know
For this 9-12 program, volunteers are asked to arrive 15 minutes early and stay 15 minutes after but this is flexible if you need to hurry elsewhere.
The only requirement is a completed background form, submitted prior to your first volunteer date. As long as everything is clear, you will be able to help in the classes.
For the day, all you would need to bring is a water bottle, snack (optional), a mask, and weather-appropriate clothing. Volunteers will need to be ready to be outside for the majority of the program unless there is inclement weather.
As volunteers will be interacting directly with children, completing this background form is required.
We hope you will find as much enjoyment out of the program as the kids by helping to support Riveredge and our wonderful homeschooling community!
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or to forward your completed background form.
