Opportunities at the BTU School, Part II

Last week you read about Madison and Hannah, two Simmons students who started an afterschool dance program at the Boston Teachers Union School. If that inspired you, consider these other opportunities to get involved with the Boston Teacher's Union School:

•Tutor math for grades 3-5 on Mondays
•Tutor math for grades 6-8 on Wednesdays and/or Fridays
•Volunteer with a class during the school day
•Assist with after-school activities 1 day a week such as gymnastics, yoga, chess, and art (starting at 3:00pm)
•Volunteer with the school library, helping with story time and organizing the books
•Lead your own after-school activities for any grade!
You could start any activity that you are passionate about: Lego club, science club, martial arts, dance, photography, journalism... the opportunities are endless!
If you come up with any great ideas over the holiday or have any questions, contact Gretchen Barkhuff, the Massachusetts Campus Compact AmeriCorps*VISTA at Simmons College partnering with the Boston Teachers Union School, at
