The mission of Cavs in the Classroom is to give a boost to the classrooms of Charlottesville and help children adapt and improve in school. The program concentrates on the volunteer's relationship with preschool through eighth grade children who need assistance with specific skills.
What will volunteers do?
Our volunteers work as a teacher’s aid in local elementary schools and lead groups of children in activities such as reading, math, spelling lessons, and art projects. While the volunteer is there to help the teacher, they are not expected to make copies, grade papers, or take care of administrative tasks. The best experiences for everyone happen when the Cavs in the Classroom volunteer gets to help the students directly!
Volunteers submit their availability and are matched for a one hour, once-a-week volunteering shift during regular school hours (Monday-Friday 8am-4pm). Transportation will be provided via carpool.
How can I get involved?
Registration opens each semester at 9am on the first day of classes.
