The Edmonds School District’s Summer Math Program, expanding to include a literacy component, needs volunteers to help students in grades 4-10 as they work to improve their proficiency in math and reading.
This is a great opportunity for individuals high school age and older to put their education to work helping others. High school students can apply their hours toward required community service or earn elective credits which count toward graduation.
Whether your comfort level with math ends with helping students on the basic math facts or you enjoy supporting students as they work to master algebra and geometry, the volunteer program can put your skills and desire to help others learn to good use. As an added benefit, volunteers report that through explaining concepts to students, they too see a significant improvement in their own understanding of math by the end of the program.
This year, the program will also work with students to improve their reading skills. You can share your passion for reading with students who are working this summer to increase their skills and enjoyment of reading.
Sign up to help on the days and times that fit your summer schedule. The program operates Monday–Thursday from July 7–Aug. 14. Sign up to help with any one of three daily sessions: 9 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. – Grades 4 – 10; 11a.m. – 12 p.m./noon Lunch and learning for students in Grades 1 – 3; 11:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. – Grades 4 – 10
