supporting Cambridge public school students

Current Volunteer Needs

Before School

Volunteer tutors are needed to staff high school drop-in math help sessions between 8:00 and 8:30 every weekday, at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School, 459 Broadway.

8:30–3:15

Our school-day openings including math and elementary literacy placements in the city’s public K–5 and preK–5 schools. Other opportunities to volunteer may open up on an as-needed basis. We accept teacher requests for volunteers on a year-round basis.

Afternoons

After-school tutoring is offered by CSV to middle schoolers referred by their teachers once a week, from 3:00 to 4:15, at CSV’s Learning Centers located in the city’s upper schools. Depending on the school, Learning Centers are open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays. At the high school level, volunteers tutor the students with whom they have been paired, on a consistent, weekly basis, at the CSV/CRLS Tutoring Center (open and staffed weekdays,  3:15–4:15 p.m.) We need tutors at both grade levels, as well as mentors for our College and Career Mentoring Program, on Wednesdays after school.

Opportunities for remote volunteering are fewer in 2021–2022 school year, but we do anticipate some openings. Remote volunteering via videoconference may take place during any of the times above, or possibly on weekends or in the evenings.
