Mentoring and Enrichment in Hoboken

Volunteers are needed to spend time with, mentor, and help manage children aged 7-17 years old. Through the TRUE Mentors Clubs program, enrichment activities that address a variety of interests with a focus on fun and development, change every 3 weeks and range from theater and art, to science and cooking. Come sharpen your own skills alongside a child today at this rewarding weekly project!
 Need-To-Know

  • Volunteers will receive a brief orientation upon arrival
  • Be patient with each student you work with
  • Willingness to change activities throughout your time is a plus
 
Quick Tips

 
  • Ask the child what they know. Ask them to point out words or numbers they understand and tell you what they mean. 
  • Ask the child what they think. Find out what kinds of conversations they are having in school about the concept, and how they feel about it.  
  • Teaching others is also learning. Ask the child to teach you how to do a certain process. When they get stuck, work on the next step together.
