Description

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 children (grades K-8). We are especially looking for educational mentors who will tutor children in language, writing, math, science and history.

CCM 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.

In an effort to achieve positive outcomes for New York City’s children, Community Counseling and Mediation actively participates in a program called Out-of-School Time (OST). This program provides children enrolled in grades K-8 a mix of academic, recreational and cultural activities afterschool, during holidays, and summer vacation.

Hours: Monday thru Friday 2:00pm to 6:00pm
To apply for the volunteer position offered by the CCM’s OST Afterschool Program, please email Community Counseling & Mediation at ccmsyep@yahoo.com, with “OST Volunteer Opportunity” in the subject line. In your message, kindly attach a copy of your resume.
