Our training library is full of resources to help you in the classroom.
How You Can Help
Whether you are able to give an hour per day, per week, per month, or per year, we have a volunteer opportunity that fits you.
Regularly scheduled, weekly in-classroom assistance is our most commonly requested volunteer position. These volunteers are matched with a classroom for the period of a school year and provide an extra set of hands, eyes, and ears to their partner teachers. More often than not, these teacher/volunteer relationships continue year-to-year as the relationship grows.
Specialized placements offer volunteers with a particular area of expertise or interest the opportunity to participate on an episodic basis – assisting in specialized events, like a spelling bee or science fair or lending their unique knowledge to lesson plans and lectures. The wealth of experiences that our volunteers bring to the S.A.G.E.™ program is what makes it so unique and effective.
Extra-curricular club and activity placements let volunteers showcase their talents and hobbies with the students – from Scrabble and chess to knitting and gardening. Our volunteers open up new worlds to the students with whom they work.
Virtual placement opportunities are now available in response to the Covid-19 epidemic. S.A.G.E. provides volunteer training for virtual support affording opportunities to contribute while addressing health and transportation concerns.
