TAF’s mission is to prepare underserved children of color for higher education and professional success by providing a rigorous and relevant K-12 curriculum.
We are currently recruiting volunteer classroom assistants for our TechStart afterschool program. Volunteers support the teacher by answering questions, keeping students on task and determining which students need extra support in the areas of Science, Technology, math and reading. TechStart is a free after-school academic enrichment program that uses technology to improve math, science and language literacy for students in grades K-9. TechStart students use technology tools in project-based learning experiences. While working on their projects, students gain valuable computer knowledge and communication skills, as well as other essential life skills such as time management, teamwork, fulfilling goals, and presenting information to audiences.
This opportunity is great experience for those seeking a career in teaching. Also this position is ideal for volunteers who enjoy working with younger children, are passionate about technology, and are looking to be part of a dynamic and diverse learning community at TAF.
We also have ongoing opportunities to volunteer your time and talent:
- Speakers and guest panelists who contribute to TAF Academy college and career development
- Tutors for TAF Academy students
- Photographers/Videographers to document the growth of our students and programs
- Marketers to lend expertise to fundraising efforts
- Event support
- General office help for mass mailers, data entry and special projects
