We couldn’t run our Discovery AfterSchool Program without the dedication of our Wesleyan student team.
"As someone who is interested in a teaching career, Green Street provides obvious benefits to me by creating an accessible space where I can develop skills and strategies for working with students on a daily basis. However, working at Green Street is also a great opportunity for people who are not necessarily interested in teaching. Green Street is a creative environment that promotes learning and growth for the teachers and tutors, in addition to the students. It gives Wesleyan students and other volunteers a chance to work with the Middletown community directly in a unique way." - Anna Flurry, AfterSchool Coordinator
If you’re interested in working with area children, AfterSchool may be the place for you. Our Discovery AfterSchool Program serves 80 area students in Grades 1-8 each year.
Teaching Assistants and Homework Tutors: Each semester we look for enthusiastic Wesleyan students (work study or volunteer) to join us as teaching assistants and homework tutors. The children we work with truly enjoy interacting with college students and you get to serve as a role model for the kids in the program.
Student Instructors: You can also build your teaching skills. Developing and teaching AfterSchool classes provides an opportunity to learn about education outside the traditional classroom. Teaching positions are paid positions (work study and non-work study).
Student Coordinators: We have several leadership positions through AfterSchool too. Each semester we need two student coordinators, a musical mentoring program coordinator, and two students to lead the Wesleyan Bound: The College Experience class for our middle schoolers.
"Over the past year and a half I have greatly enjoyed working at Green Street. Entering college I was unsure about what I wanted to do in the future but I knew that I enjoyed working with children in the past. Creating bonds with the kids by helping them with their homework and seeing them enjoying themselves in their classes has been a great way for me to spend my afternoons." -Kamilah O'Conner, AfterSchool CoordinatorContact our AfterSchool Coordinators today if you're interested in learning more.
