Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Art With a Heart.

We are currently seeking volunteers for our daytime classroom programming that runs for ten weeks September 2019 – December 2019.

Creative Classroom Connections: Early childhood classroom volunteers will work directly in a classroom, with the teacher and an AWAH staff member present, to integrate art with learning. No art or teaching experience is required. All needed training will be provided. These classroom volunteers will help prepare and clean up supplies, assist the teacher, and lead mini-lessons for early childhood students in small groups. Classes are during the school day, one day a week for 90 minutes. We ask that each volunteer commit to at least 5 days of programming.  Available sites include:
