Group Volunteer Opportunities

Thanks for your interest in bringing your group to volunteer with New American Pathways. Groups are able to volunteer both during the week and the weekends. The majority of volunteer opportunities are offered during the day; we have a few evening opportunities, but not many.

Donation Drives

Our group volunteer opportunities include holding a donation drive, this could be in forms of participating in a clothing drive, Welcome to America, baby essentials and necessities, hygiene kits, and now that summer is coming to an end, a winter wear drive. With the donation drives, those dates are determined by your group’s availability. Groups can pick a drive they want to collect items for and then can come and assemble here in the New AP office.

After-School Participation

We offer one-time and ongoing opportunities for groups to participate in after-school tutoring at one of our partner middle or elementary schools. Participants can create an enrichment activity to implement and share with the students. After-school at the elementary school runs from Monday through Thursday from 2:30PM – 5:30PM and Middle School runs from 4:00PM to 6:00PM

Requirements

All individuals who choose to participate in after-school tutoring  for more than 2 days, or on more than one occasion must undergo a background check to ensure the safety of our clients. Background checks are $50 per person.
