Volunteer Application Form
The ideal volunteer is a self starter who works well with others from a diverse background. Good communication, interpersonal skills, and adaptability are also necessary. The candidate should enjoy working with youth.
After School Mentors are paired with one of our K-12 students. Ideally, After School Mentors will remain paired with that same student for the duration of a semester or more. After School Mentors focus their time on building trust and relationship with their mentee, and the other students at the program. Mentors will engage with students during recreation and mealtime. Most of the time will be spent in a one on one setting where mentors provide homework help and lead other activities designed to build relationship and promote education and/or interpersonal skills, which could include but are not limited to reading together or playing games. After School Mentors communicate concerns, and work with other volunteers and CHAT staff to improve the experience for all. All After School Program Mentors are required to attend a training.
Minimum length of term: one semester (longer commitments encouraged)

If your schedule allows you to arrive half an hour early or stay half an hour late on the day you come out to volunteer, please consider serving as a bus caption. Since CHAT provides transportation to the youth in our programs, having another adult present in addition to the driver helps make the bus a safe place.
