More than 60 prospective volunteers attended CSV’s annual fall kick-off event, another strong turnout according to executive director, Jen Fries. After a brief welcome by Fries, a pizza/salad dinner and a chance to socialize, CSV’s newest volunteers divided into an elementary/middle school and high school group. Both spent the next 90 minutes learning more about the Cambridge public schools, the nuts and bolts of getting started as a volunteer, as well as tackle the paperwork needed to begin. Several veteran volunteers were on hand to share their personal experiences from past years.
CSV is looking for additional volunteers at all levels. Did you tinker with science projects as a kid and could you now help mentor students on the Science Olympiad team? Are you thinking of changing careers and wondering what it’s like these days in a kindergarten class? Have you thought about helping high school seniors with their college essays? Could you spend an hour per week helping middle school students with homework? Join us for one of our on-going orientations that can make YOU a Cambridge School Volunteer! Just click on one of our two sites, elementary/middle or high school, to register for an orientation.
