Volunteering in Cambridge-Isanti schools offers a variety of ways to get involved and make a difference in a student's life.
Did you know we have a strong and growing Adult Basic Education program at Cambridge-Isanti Schools? We are always looking for people to volunteer with our adult learners in this rewarding environment.
Classroom volunteer: Work one-on-one with students on Reading or Math (we do have quite a few students who are low-level math—multiplication/division, decimals, etc. We would never expect a volunteer to work with a student on a subject that they felt was out of their comfort zone).
One-on-one tutoring: This could be with a native-English speaking student who has a low reading level and wants to become a better reader, or, with a non-native English speaker who wants to learn English. (We are seeing a slight increase in requests for ESL classes/tutors).
Free training is provided through the Minnesota Literacy Council if the volunteer wishes. (It is recommended, but not absolutely necessary to be a volunteer for us).
Volunteers in our school district help out in a variety of ways and varying commitment levels.
Some examples are:
|BoxTops for Education; count, organize and submit for schools||Cut, Collate, Copy|
