We are looking for volunteers to support students in grades 4-7 with topics tied to the BC Provincial Learning Outcomes! You would teach a short lesson, facilitate a question period where students would ask homework questions they were assigned from class, as well as facilitate icebreaker games to encourage community building.
We ask volunteers to commit to running a 6 week program beginning the week of October 19th for 1.5 hours a week, most classes will run from 4:00-5:30pm. With prep time included this would involve approximately 3-4 hours of volunteer time each week. Training will occur on the weekend of October 3rd (time TBD). This program will equip you will valuable soft skills in communicating your STEM knowledge to the general community. It will also give you experience working with youth and facilitating community building and tutoring in a group setting.
