After School Clubs: Do you have a niche skill you are willing to share with students (chess, drama, STEM, etc.)? Lead a small group after school club or provide assistance to an already established club. Meetings begin at 3:45.
Classroom Support: Partner with a teacher needing an extra set of hands. Support may be needed on a regular basis or for short term projects.
