Description

The Bridge Teen Center is looking for volunteers to support its after-school programs on a weekly basis (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday afternoons from 2 pm - 6 pm) and Friday night events on a monthly basis (7 pm - 11 pm). Establishing and deepening relationships with students is the primary focus. Volunteers fill a few different roles. The front desk volunteer helps keep a safe and secure environment, checks students in and out, and directs phone calls. The cafe volunteer handles concessions while engaging students on their laptops. Floating volunteers rotate throughout the center and engage students in conversations and games. We serve students in 7th-12th grade, and also provide ongoing programs and resources to help parents navigate through the teenage years. Because student safety is our primary concern, The Bridge is managed by experienced professionals who are supported by well-trained and pre-screened adult volunteers.
