WHAT IS HORIZONS?
Our mission is to change the life trajectory of students from historically underserved and under-represented communities by providing opportunities to find joy in learning, learn academic and social skills for success, and to inspire student to realize their dreams. It is a 6-week summer enrichment program for students in our Germantown neighborhood public schools, focused on our Wister Elementary School partnership, that includes lots of learning inside and beyond the classroom, including reading, writing, STEAM, art, music, swimming lessons, and field trips.
The 2019 summer program runs from June 24th through August 2nd. Volunteers will commit to a full schedule (7:45am-3:30pm) and daily assignment(s) that may involve classroom/student support, meal preparation, activity leadership, and appropriate school-environment engagement as a role model to students in the program.
At the end of their volunteer commitment (whether 1 week or more) with Horizons at GSFS this summer, volunteers will be asked to provide a brief personal reflection regarding their service experience with Horizons at GSFS.
Volunteering for Horizons is an important commitment that should be met with a sense of professionalism and dedication. After reviewing your summer availability with your family, please submit your preferred volunteer schedule based on your known or probable availability, choosing from the options provided in this application.
Your application will be reviewed alongside the volunteer needs of the program and the summer calendar. You will be contacted by a Summer Program representative regarding your application status after the deadline, regarding next steps to interview or discontinue the process.
Thank you for your interest in engaging in this amazing Horizons program hosted at Greene Street Friends School!
