CASSC Seeking Volunteers

The Catskill Area Study Council is in need of volunteers to work in classrooms with elementary and middle school students during a series of four Saturday morning workshops held here on campus. This is a great opportunity for Education majors to get actual classroom experience. A variety of classes will be offered and the course descriptions are attached. (we already have teachers lined up for these classes, but each teacher needs at least one volunteer to help them in their room.)

We need volunteers to work in classrooms here on campus with elementary students on Saturday mornings beginning October 14th. The dates are October 14, 21, 28, and November 4; the “snow date” is November 11, 2017.

We need volunteers to submit an application to us no later than the end of September, and the sooner the better, so that we can process the applications prior to the start of the program.

If you are interested in volunteering please fill out the application and return it to the Catskill Area School Study Council at 243 Fitzelle Hall, or by e-mail to me at the e-mail address below, no later than the end of September.
