Volunteer This Summer at the Brain Forest!
We’re looking for volunteers for this summer!
Would you like to help children in Montgomery learn just what a difference a summer can make? Come volunteer with MEF’s Brain Forest Summer Learning Programs! Below are some opportunities.
The Reading on Wheels Program (ROW) is a seven-week initiative that engages youth of all ages during the summer months with access to a fully stocked mobile library and STEM learning labs at various community centers around the city. Each week participants will be able to check out books from our diverse collection of children's books and young adult novels. They will also explore a new STEM theme such as engineering, chemistry, and physics.
Volunteers will assist with stocking the shelves of the two mobile libraries, working with staff to execute summer enrichment activities at community centers over the course of the program, distributing student incentive prizes and photographing student participants.
The Brain Forest Summer Learning Academy is a five-week full-day program that offers a high quality academic enrichment opportunity to rising fourth, fifth and sixth grade students in Montgomery Public Schools. Students spend mornings in instructional time with a focus on math and reading and during the afternoon all students participate in a rotation of creative arts, STEM, and recreational activities.
Volunteers are needed in a myriad of roles to ensure these programs run smoothly and offer the best experience possible for each participant. You may choose to assist with parent orientation, supporting the director in administrative duties, tending to the learning garden, chaperoning a field trip, working at our weekly student incentive store, or photographing the children as they participate in classroom time and activities throughout the day...the possibilities are endless!
Looking to get involved? Please email Dillon Nettles at Dillon@montgomeryed.org!
