Volunteer Opportunity at Homework Help Center at Santa Barbara Public Library



I’m reaching out to see if you are able to share a volunteer opportunity with students. Santa Barbara Public Library is offering volunteer trainings for our Homework Help Center on Wednesday, August 29, from 5:15-6:30 p.m., or Saturday, September 8, from 1-2:15 p.m. in the Tech Lab of the Santa Barbara Central Library, located at 40 E. Anapamu.


Volunteers are asked to work a minimum of two hours a week assisting children with reading and/or homework. Teen volunteers earn community service hours for their time, must be at least 14 years old, and maintain at least a B grade-point average. Volunteers 18 and older need to complete a background check/livescan. Those interested in volunteering can register online for the Wednesday or Saturday training, or contact Molly Wetta, Senior Librarian for Youth Services at [email protected] or (805) 564-5642.


Homework Help is available at Central Library beginning September 5th, 2018 on Mondays from 3:30 pm to 6:30 pm and Wednesdays from 2:30 pm to 6:30 pm. Students can sign up for 20 minute sessions for assistance with math or other homework, or practice reading aloud with a volunteer.


I’ve attached a flyer as well.

Thank you for your assistance, and if you no longer wish to be on our contact list for homework help volunteer recruitment, let me know, or if there is another contact at your organization I should add, please let me know.
