 VOLUNTEERING


  • Tutors for the Homework Help Room: (M-R 4:15-6pm) Tutors work with students one-on-one or in small groups, and help keep the homework room a quiet, productive space. We ask that all tutors are able to help with 5th-8th grade level homework in all core subject areas.
  • Weekly Activity Leaders: (M-R 4:15-5:15pm) This is usually a better opportunity for college students or older. We ask that activity leaders commit to planning and leading a 1-hour long activity at the same time once per week for at least one semester. For example, leading a weekly art class.

To be considered for a volunteer position, please submit the following forms to MiddletonYouthCenter@ci.middleton.wi.us:
