Urban Affairs Committee

Do you enjoy working with school age kids? Would you like to help urban youngsters who are having trouble academically?If so, here are some great opportunities for you to consider.

  • Tutoring in a Lowell Middle School

    Temple Emunah has been providing tutoring support to youngsters in several locations since 1997. We are now helping at the Sullivan School, a middle school (grades 5 to 8) located in Lowell. Our volunteers are there on Monday afternoons from 1:10 to 3:10 where each works with one youngster during the school day and then as part of an after school program. We have been helping fifth to seventh graders in math and English. Our pay, of course, consists of the satisfaction of seeing youngsters who are having academic trouble move on. You must be available at least twice a month to participate. Teaching experience is not necessary.

  • Literacy Tutoring in a Cambridge Elementary School

    If you would prefer to work with children younger than middle school age you might enjoy joining the literacy tutors from Temple Isaiah. They work with children from kindergarten through third grade, in a Cambridge Public School, to provide support or enrichment, primarily in reading. You do not need any teaching experience; training and support are provided through the Jewish Community Relations Council. You would be joining over 700 volunteers in the Greater Boston area who participate in the Greater Boston Jewish Coalition for Literacy. You need to commit to one morning hour each week, but the scheduling is flexible.
