Description & History

You can choose from One-on-One Lessons or Group Lessons.
  • One-on-One Lessons: We pair you with a child who’s interested in learning or practicing the skill or hobby you love. (Building Rube Goldberg machines? Sure, why not!) You’ll meet at the child’s home for 1 hour a week for 8 weeks. We’ll give you supplies and equipment, and support you with creative ideas to make sure you have a fun activity to share with your student each week.
  • Group Lessons: We enroll a group of 15 kids to participate in group lessons. Lessons are usually 1.5 hours long and meet once a week for 8 weeks. There’s a head coach to lead each session and we recruit three volunteer coaches (i.e. YOU) to assist. We provide all the equipment. (We give you a cool t-shirt, too!) Group lessons typically take place at a park, community center, or studio space.
Some of our 2017 group lessons are: Basketball,
Cooking, Dance, Painting, Circus Arts, and Soccer.

The application is simple:


  • You must be 18 years or older.
  • Have access to transportation.

  • Commit to 8 hours of volunteering in a year.

  • Complete a 1 hour training program with our staff.
