Opportunity Details

Prospect Hill Academy STEAM Saturdays!

The health and safety of our volunteers, Volunteer Leaders, and the people we serve is our top priority. We are working with our Community Partners to ensure that state & city guidance is followed to slow the spread of COVID-19. Read about our Safety Requirements.

Join the STEAM Saturdays Team!
Overview: STEAM Saturday is an exciting opportunity for the students of Prospect Hill Academy in grades K to 8 to explore, discover, and learn outside the traditional classroom and be inspired to uncover their passion, gain motivation, and become lifelong learners.  Across the Saturdays, students will engage in hands-on, interactive, and fun learning activities in a diverse selection of topics in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math.  
PHA is looking for volunteers in the following categories: operations/ registration volunteer & classroom volunteer. The operations and registration volunteers will complete tasks like helping students sign in, getting their name tags, assisting in breakfast set up and breakdown, snack distribution, walking students during transitions to their enrichment activities, and dismissal.  
Their classroom volunteers will assist the volunteer teacher during enrichment activities by passing out materials, helping students with instructions, walking students to the water fountain or bathroom, etc. Their classroom volunteers should be comfortable working with students in grades K-8. This is a perfect volunteer opportunity for someone who is flexible, adaptable, and enjoys spending time with youth.
Volunteers will need to be able to commit to at least 1 Cohort of 3 weeks (or 3 Saturday’s) of programming as well as attend a volunteer training session before programming begins. Volunteers are welcome to attend all 6 Saturday's if you'd like. Please sign up for the Cohort(s) you'd like to attend. For more information or questions, reach out to Boston Cares at volunteers@bostoncares.org.
