Corporate Volunteering:
Read aloud in schools, host students (or classes) at work, book drives – there are many ways a corporation’s employees can get involved firsthand and we can customize an opportunity based on the needs of each company.

Market Makers is an entrepreneur-based financial literacy program for students in underserved schools and communities. Volunteers will act as business coaches to middle school students in Market Makers clubs, providing valuable input in running a business, sharing information and ideas about their career and motivating students.   

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY

ExpandED Schools is very excited to announce another upcoming volunteer opportunity for you all! Our Design2Learn program is hosting an event at Highland Park Community School in Cypress Hills, Brooklyn! It is our Design2Learn Olympics where students and educators from 16 implementation sites will come together for a series of fun design challenges, teamwork, and design-based learning! Students will have the opportunity to do multiple challenges during the event. Volunteers would be tasked with working these activity stations, helping kids with design, and assisting with distribution of materials (and pizza!).

It is sure to be a very engaging and worthwhile event, where you will have the chance to see the creativity of our Design2Learn students at their most active, and work hands on with them as well!

The event will be taking place on January 6th, 2018, from 10am – 1pm. If you are interested in volunteering, please email us confirming your attendance by December 18th.
