supporting Cambridge public school students

Virtual Volunteering in the Cambridge Public Schools

How to Apply

Cambridge School Volunteers (CSV) worked collaboratively with the Cambridge Public School district administration to expand our services to students during the Spring 2020 closure of school buildings by using videoconference platforms. During the 2020-21 school year, CSV volunteers are mentoring, tutoring, and assistance to teachers and classrooms using Zoom and/or Google Meet. No in-person volunteering is permitted by the school district.

We are accepting applications to be a volunteer in our Art & Science in One Program, providing trained mentors in nature journaling to entire classrooms of Grade 4 and 5 students. The program has been redesigned for a virtual format this year. Click on the button below to begin.

We are seeking additional volunteers for the spring semester to be matched with individual students as tutors at the high school level.

Except for our Art & Science in One program (See above), we have temporarily paused our review of applications from prospective volunteers at the elementary and middle (upper) school level. Check this page again or email csv@cpsd.us to learn when we re-open applications.
