Description

Community Counseling and Mediation is a community-based, not-for-profit social services organization that annually serves thousands of at-risk children, youth and families in some of the poorest minority-populated areas of Brooklyn. Community Counseling and Mediation (CCM) is currently seeking dedicated individuals with a profound interest in making a significant and positive impact on the lives of New York City’s youth who are in and will be transitioning from foster care. We are especially looking for educational mentors who will tutor youth in language, writing, math, science and history.
In an effort to achieve positive outcomes for New York City’s foster care youth, Community Counseling and Mediation actively participates in a program called Preparing Youth for Adulthood (PYA) which primarily caters to youth ages 12 through 21. As part of an academic enrichment component of CCM PYA, CCM has established an afterschool program that provides study hall, regent’s prep and GED prep to all foster care youth in our charge. Volunteer members will plan curriculum and facilitate all lessons.

Hours: Monday thru Saturday 3:00pm to 6:00pm (Hours are flexible)
Service site is located at Community Counseling Mediation, 810 Classon Avenue, Brooklyn New York, 11238.
To apply for the volunteer position offered by the PYA Afterschool Program, please email Community Counseling & Mediation at ccmsyep@yahoo.com, with “volunteer opportunity” in the subject line. In your message, kindly attach a copy of your resume.
