Volunteer Opportunities for CHS Students
Reading Buddy Program – This program links CHS students with K-3 students who could benefit from additional read aloud time. CHS volunteers take a district but once a week during their lunch period to an elementary school where they are partnered with a student who will be their buddy for the 6 week session. After reading together for about 20 minutes, the HS students return to CHS in time for their next scheduled class. The elementary students look forward to and LOVE the time spent with their older buddy. This is a wonderful opportunity to perform community service during the school day. The first session will begin in October. Lunch is provided for those who cannot bring lunch from home on scheduled volunteer days. Interested students can complete the registration form here or see Marilu Gregory in room B230.
Achieve Volunteer Tutor Program – Students help elementary, middle or other CHS students with their school work during 1 hour weekly sessions in district schools with staff supervision. Volunteers can choose after school, evening or weekends. Training workshops for volunteers are offered throughout the year. CHS students can click here to fill out the online form or see Amy Forman in room A139 Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays during their lunch period. Paper copies of applications and tutor request forms are also always available in the CHS counseling center. Please click here for more information about the program or contact Amy Forman.
Study Buddy Program – Study Buddies are students from CHS who help struggling students in middle or elementary school in our district. The program is for children who need help with school work, need assistance with homework, or need help sitting down and getting their homework done. Study Buddies can help students with time management and organization, project planning, staying on task, and taking appropriate breaks when needed. Study Buddies bring their own homework to the struggling student’s house to model excellent homework completion behavior, and eventually will wean the student from the need for supervision. CHS students who are interested in participating in this program should print out, complete and submit this profile to Melissa Lustmann.
