Looking for an opportunity to provide hands-on service? Would you enjoy working with young children who could benefit from your knowledge and experience? Please consider joining the team of volunteers at The Learning Trail who work to help the low-income children living in the Nature Trail mobile home park reach their academic potential. We offer Early Childhood Programs, elementary and middle-school after-school tutoring programs, and a summer enrichment camp. All services are provided at 326 Nature Trail, Chapel Hill, NC 27517, which is accessed by Mt. Carmel Church Road.
All volunteers have college degrees and, while many have teaching credentials and experience, it is not necessary to have had a career in education to be involved. Each program has a lead tutor who plans the lessons and activities and helps the tutors work with the children. Tutors in the after-school program generally work one on one with a child, although some small group sessions may also occur occasionally. Volunteers are needed for all programs . You can choose a grade level or day that works with your schedule. To learn more or to volunteer, go to www.thelearningtrail.org or email us at info@thelearningtrail.cor
