Be a Volunteer

There are many volunteer opportunities at Hope-Hill Elementary School. Right now, the school is especially interested in

  • literacy, reading, and math tutors on Wednesday afternoon from 2:45 to 3:45 PM
  • classroom volunteers
  • help with afternoon enrichment clubs led by UUCA members and friends, and
  • homework help with Afterschool Classe.

There are also one-off opportunities, like reading on Dr. Seuss Day, judging projects at the academic fair, and assisting at the Fall Festival.

Directions to Hope-Hill may be found here.

At Operation P.E.A.C.E. during the school year we need volunteers any day Monday through Thursday afternoons from 4:00 to 5:00 PM. On Mondays we lead a special math program to teach concepts and skills, and need classroom helpers. From Tuesday to Thursday we do homework help, help with online computerized math instruction, and play educational board games with one or more students. During the summer we need volunteers during the day at their Summer Academy, any day Monday through Thursday.

Operation P.E.A.C.E. is located in the same building as the Kindezi School, 386 Pine Street, Atlanta, GA 30308. Parking is usually available behind the school on Merritts Avenue.

Big Bethel AME Saturday School has small group sessions in reading and math from 10:30 AM to noon for students from Pre-K to high school age. After lunch students engage in other activities (e.g., dance, sports, music, arts and crafts) from 1:30 to 2:30 PM. Volunteers with special interests in any of these areas would be welcomed to lead or to help with morning or afternoon sessions.
