Interested in volunteering at Billings Forge Community Works?

The afterschool program at Billings Forge is a free weekday program that offers youth in the neighborhood a safe place to come during after school hours. Most of the 15 students who attend the program are 3rd to 6th grade students from the Burns Latino Studies Academy and live in the Frog Hollow neighborhood. The program offers healthy snacks, homework assistance and daily activities, as well as weekly enrichment classes in art, music, dance, and cooking, that are taught by partnering instructors.  Volunteers are sought who can commit to at least one day per week from 3:00 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. for the academic year. Volunteers will help with classroom set-up, activity and behavior monitoring, homework tutoring, and classroom clean-up.

The daily schedule breakdown is as follows:

  • 2:45 p.m.: Volunteers arrive and prepare day’s activities
  • 3:00 p.m.: Students arrive
  • 3:00 p.m. - 3:25 p.m.: Snack time, informal roundtable check-ins, activity
