Our program offers mature students, who have completed at least 7th grade, a volunteer opportunity to provide an important community service and learn the basics of working with children, while having fun! Volunteers will assist Lead Teachers and Assistant Teachers with students, and will participate in Horizons daily activities. A typical day may include academics, computers, arts and crafts, swimming, breakfast/lunch and sports. At the end of their time with Horizons, volunteers will be asked to provide a written summary, including a brief personal reflection regarding their community service experience at Horizons. If you are accepted as a volunteer at Horizons, a parental signature will be required.
Horizons at The Ethel Walker Walker School's summer program will run for six weeks, from June 27, 2022 to August 5th, 2022. Volunteers must commit to a regular schedule and daily assignment(s). Please give careful thought to your availability during this time. Volunteering for Horizons is an exciting 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.
The COVID-19 pandemic has made the inequities in our education system painfully apparent and many of our families have been affected by this. Now, more than ever, our students need access to opportunities to help them close the achievement gap. Last Summer 2021, Horizons at The Ethel Walker School was so happy to host our 6 week program in-person once more. In the six weeks, no one had contracted a single case of COVID-19. As we approach the Summer of 2022, we are confident in the vigilance of our students and staff in taking preventative measures to keep each other safe. If you have any further questions about the COVID-19 protocol that will be taken in the upcoming Summer, please feel free to send us a message by using the "contact" button on our webpage.
Thank you for your interest in Horizons at The Ethel Walker School!
