Saturday School Community Partnership – Volunteers Needed

Housing Families Inc. in Malden will be hosting “Saturday School” for kids in the Malden area who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Saturday school will begin March 2nd and continue for 6 weeks until April 6th. We are looking for interested community partners to come in for the 9am-12pm time block on one or more of those Saturdays to teach our kids something unique and fun. There will be about 30 kids in the program broken up into groups of 10. Each group will cycle through 3 different activities (so if a group of 4 students comes they can create 2 one hour activities and have 2 students run one group and 2 run the other). The 3rd activity will be run by our counselors which is why we only need two activities from you. Our kids will range in ages and abilities so the activity should be something that could excite any age group. Examples of things we are looking for include: fun easy science experiments, baking, sports activities, spoken word poetry, an educational scavenger hunt etc. If you are interested in helping us out with this program, or if you would like to learn more, please reach out to me at jsaropoulos@housingfamilies.org or call me at 781-333-2289 ext 203.
