How can CSV support me?
Cambridge School Volunteers (CSV) has worked for fifty years to understand and support the challenges of  public school teachers and students. Each year CSV assists teachers by providing trained volunteers to work as classroom assistants and tutors in the Cambridge Public Schools.

Teachers may request volunteers for classroom, small group or individual tutoring.

Are volunteers screened?
We require all of our volunteers to complete an interview, training and placement process. Each volunteer also completes a CORI form and provides two references.
