Volunteer Opportunities:

After School Tutoring/Mentoring Support

Volunteer tutors/mentors* are needed for an after school homework-help program for elementary, middle and high school students from Burma, all of whom as new Americans have been resettled to the USA as refugees within the last 5 years. Through participation in this program, in addition to providing service, you will have an opportunity to learn about cultures from Burma, gain experience in an educational/youth setting and learn about the process of adjusting to life as a refugee in Lowell. The mentoring program meets from 4.00-5.30pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Ability to help with math homework and experience working with children is highly desirable but not required.

Coach Sports

Saydanar is looking for skilled sports enthusiasts who have experience/are comfortable coaching middle to high school students. This position will provide an invaluable opportunity to work with new Americans, and to help develop a new recreational/games component for the Saydanar After School program. A minimum commitment of 45 minutes per week is required. Saydanar is looking for volunteers* with basketball, soccer or volleyball skills. *All interested volunteers must pass a CORI (Massachusetts Criminal Offender Record Information) and attend a mandatory induction to be eligible to tutor or coach at Saydanar.
