What We Do

As a Title 1 school, the majority of students at Vose Elementary come from homes living at or below the poverty level.  The After-School Program provides them with opportunities to enhance their learning through classes designed to meet a variety of their needs.  Some after-school classes provide students with additional support to meet grade level academic expectations, while others are designed to enrich their experiences and learning.  After School Homework and Reading Clubs provide students with additional support in developing their literacy skills in both Spanish and English.

Opportunities for service with us

Volunteer opportunities include afterschool garden science and chess programs as well as academic classes focusing on literacy and math, Homework Club, and reading to 2nd and 3rd graders. Mondays and Wednesdays from 3-4. Afterschool programs on Tuesdays and Thursdays are beginning Spanish, soccer, choir, Chicano arts, instruments, and using photography to get to know the community. There may also be some evening and daytime opportunities – check with the volunteer coordinator. All volunteers are asked to commit to I day a week (especially Mondays) for a full trimester. Background check required.
