Volunteers

FOR VOLUNTEERS

     Make a difference today by joining our team of highly motivated and caring volunteers. We have a vision of inspiring and helping open new opportunities for young kids in STEM-related fields, but to get there, we rely on volunteers like you working as part of our volunteering family to help transform our mission into reality, one kid at a time. Volunteering with Eager2Learn is fun and rewarding. The experience also provides you with exceptional opportunities to cultivate your leadership and communication skills. It’s also unlike typical volunteer experiences in that we empower YOU with the support and training you need to be an agent of change. We welcome middle and high school students to take on these volunteer opportunities. Several of our caring mentors are our prior bootcamp students as a way to give back to their respective communities and to support our organization's vision and mission.

ANY SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS FOR MENTORS/INSTRUCTORS?

For the safety of students, Eager2Learn will be certifying each instructor and mentor by asking parents/teacher references before you will start taking classes. And due to the diversity and specialty of our technical programs, we require the mentors/instructor to attend special content training and pre-event sessions prior to each event if needed. During volunteer application, please specify your preference so we can better match your current experience and coordinate your initial training boot camp.
