Volunteer Opportunities - After School Program

Big Brothers Big Sisters After School Program has Volunteer Opportunities in Prescott

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Leeds and Grenville is looking for volunteers aged 13 and over to help with their afterschool program at Wellington Elementary School in Prescott, starting September 30th.

Volunteers can help in many ways, from preparing snacks, helping with homework, facilitating a craft, reading to a child or playing games and sports. If you have a special talent such as music, art or dance, you could share this with the group and inspire a wider interest for the child.

Volunteers will not only be helping a child, volunteering with the afterschool program is a great way to:

  • earn community service hours
  • try out a new career
  • add to college and job applications
  • feel a personal sense of accomplishment
  • experience greater self-esteem and a sense of purpose
  • share your expertise or hobby
  • teach a skill

Our program runs five days a week Monday through Friday from 3:20-5:30 and volunteers can choose when and how often they would like to help. If you are interested in being a positive role model and a friend to a child, our school based mentoring program could be perfect for you.

Please call 613-345-0281 or email bbbs.leeds@bigbrothersbigsisters.ca if you are interested in this or many other volunteer opportunities with Big Brothers Big Sisters!
