Brooklyn Free School Seeks Volunteers

Our volunteer program is a great way to learn about the schoolʼs unique philosophy and participate in the school community. Volunteers have the opportunity to observe and participate directly in the daily life of the school, share their interests and passions with a community of learners, and form deep and meaningful relationships with students of all ages.

Successful volunteers are dependable, reliable, flexible, organized, creative, supportive of the schoolʼs mission, and interested in children/education; they have had previous experience with children, relate well to children of all ages, and are excited about learning for themselves and others.  Communication skills, punctuality, consistency, and commitment are essential to being a volunteer at Brooklyn Free School.

Apply to this program if you can commit to volunteering for a full day each week, for a minimum of a semester or if you can offer a class at a regular time each week. Applicants are encouraged to participate in the program for the full experience of a complete year at a free school.

 

SCHOOL VOLUNTEERS – ONE FULL DAY PER WEEK
