Horizons offers students volunteer opportunities to provide an important community service and  learn the basics of working with children while having fun. Volunteers will assist Lead  and Assistant Teachers in the classroom and participate in Horizons activities throughout the 6 week Summer Program.  Each volunteer will be assigned a classroom to work in throughout their time at Horizons. A typical day will include breakfast and lunch, academic class time, swimming and other enrichments. Upon completion of work, volunteers will be asked to submit a written summary including a brief personal reflection regarding their community service experience at Horizons.

Job Description:

The Summer Program will run for six weeks, from  June 24th to August 2nd, 2024. Volunteers must commit to a daily schedule from 7:50 a.m. - 3:40 p.m.. New this year: opportunities are available for the entire 6 weeks or 2 week sessions ONLY.  

Please give careful consideration to your participation as there will be fewer available spaces to make the volunteer experience as engaging as possible. Volunteering for Horizons is a commitment that should be met with a sense of professionalism and dedication. 

Horizons will ultimately set the volunteer schedule based on the needs of the program. You will be contacted in April as to your acceptance into the Horizons Volunteer Program and to confirm plans and receive your work schedule.


Thank you for your interest in Horizons at The Ethel Walker School!
