Volunteer with CUNO at Citizen Schools
When: Multi-visit program for this Fall semester (10 weeks).
Where: East Harlem.
CUNO (Columbia University Neuroscience Outreach) is seeking volunteers to participate in the after-school program Citizen Schools. All the lessons are already planned out and supplies are given, so except for some prep you can mostly show up and teach (or feel free to change the lessons in any way you want). A Citizen Schools teacher is there the whole time, so it ‘s an easy way to start teaching if you have no previous experience.
If you think you might be interested in volunteering or have questions, please email [email protected] or [email protected] and they will get back to you with some more information!
