THANK YOU CLASS copy

Our students want to learn what you love! Every year, PSCS involves volunteers from the community who bring their unique expertise and energy to the school. Students receive the benefit of the personal experiences of the volunteers, exposure to a diversity of teaching methods and styles, as well as an additional lens through which they learn about and explore the world.

People interested in volunteering are required to bring two things to PSCS: strong interest in the topic they are sharing and a desire to share it. We believe that any person who brings these two things is a natural teacher. If you meet these criteria and have one or two hours available each week, consider volunteering. You'll participate in a mandatory orientation, complete a background check, and are onboarded by our Director of Program.
