Help Kids Succeed at Foundation Communities' After School Programs

  • Do you want to make a difference in a child’s life?
  • Do you want to grow your skills working with youth in an educational and service-oriented environment?
  • Do you have experience and skills to share from a personal or professional background working with kids?
  • Do you like to have fun? Connect with kids? Learn about yourself?

If you said yes to any of the above, then we need you!

Foundation Communities is a local nonprofit dedicated to providing quality affordable housing and support services to families and individuals. We operate free after school programs at 10 Learning Centers all over Austin. (There’s probably one close to you! Check out the map here.)

We are seeking volunteers to provide general classroom support, as well as help our elementary-age students with homework, science projects, reading, fitness, enrichment activities and social/emotional skills to thrive this school year and beyond!

Programs run Monday through Friday between 3:30 – 6:00 pm. To start, volunteers commit to at least one regular shift per week for the semester. We can offer some flexibility for arrival and departure times within these hours. 

Volunteers must complete an online application, pass a background check (no cost to the volunteer), and attend one 1.5 hour orientation. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old. 

Our next round of orientations will be held in June for our summer enrichment program. Let us know you're interested and we'll send you next steps to get started.
