Neighborhood School Centers
The Fitz Center is happy to introduce you to Dayton’s Neighborhood School Centers (NSC). The NSCs are Dayton Public Schools that are centers of their neighborhoods, serving as healthy places of learning for children and families. Each of these schools works with the Fitz Center to place volunteers on a weekly or one-time basis.
Students interested in volunteering on a weekly basis can choose from one of four tracks:
- Track One: Education Assistants attend a training provided by ProjectRead to obtain the skills and resources necessary to be an efficient and effective Education Assistant. Education Assistants engage with kindergarten through eighth grade students one-on-one, in small groups, or in classrooms as literacy or mathematics tutors, classroom aids, peer mentors, club aids, and more.
- Track Two: ESL Volunteers attend a training provided by ProjectRead to obtain skills and resources specific to ESL students. ESL Volunteers engage with kindergarten through eighth grade ESL students one-on-one or in small groups as a tutor and/or mentor
- Track Three: Sports Volunteers attend a training provided by the Fitz Center that focuses on engaging with children. Sports Volunteers coach kindergarten through eighth grade sports teams.
- Track Four: Special Projects volunteers attend a training provided by the Fitz Center that focuses on engaging with children. Students can craft Special Projects to meet their needs. Examples of past special projects include dance clinics, dental days, etc.
Once students have chosen a track they must register for orientation. Register now (www) >>Top
