If you have a few hours during the week and want to inspire young minds, then volunteering at TNDC’s After-School Program (TASP) is for you! The Center serves youth between the ages of 5 and 18 years old and is a safe, supportive space for kids. TASP offers a range of free educational, cultural, artistic, and physical activities. The program is especially eager to enlist volunteers who have strong academic skills to provide tutoring in all subjects—like reading, math, science, and history. TASP operates from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturdays. We have extended hours on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. for teen homework sessions. Please note that volunteers must make a minimum six month commitment and work between 4-6 hours every month. A background check is also required. For more information, review the TASP Volunteer Interest Packet.
If you’re interested in volunteering, contact Alyssa Santos, Program Coordinator, at (415) 776-8407 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
