Children & Youth During School

Fall, 2021 Program Changes

Local school districts are still determining how they can use volunteers during the pandemic. This page will be updated when the districts have determined how volunteers can assist.


Below is a list of programs in which Eastern students have the opportunity to learn from and contribute to the education and well-being of local youth aged 4-18 years during the school day. All volunteers are required by community partners to be vaccinated for COVID-19.


Windham High School ESL Mentoring: The ESL class at Windham High School offers high school students with a safe space to improve their English Language and other essential skills that prepare them for the future. Currently, the high school students in this class are predominantly Spanish speakers. Volunteers will assist the teacher, provide encouragement to the high school students and implement activities with the assistance of a CCE Leader. Some of the activities to be implemented by the volunteers include college searches and assisting with college application essays. This opportunity is ideal for volunteers interested in interacting with individuals from different cultures, interested in the education system, and currently learning or trying to improve their own Spanish speaking.

United Way Readers at Natchaug School: The United Way Readers program is designed to increase the number of children reading on grade level by the end of third grade by recruiting and organizing volunteers to read to students for one hour, once per week, throughout the school year.
