Volunteer with us!


After School

The After-School Program is a place where our children have the opportunity to work on their homework with the help of an adult, engage their creativity through a variety of art projects, practice vocabulary while reading books, play games of basketball and other sports, and learn more about the world around them. After School runs Monday through Friday during the school year at Downtown Academy from 3:30-5:00. Volunteers commit to After School for a minimum of an academic semester, but many stay for a year or two!

Lunch Buddies

Lunch Buddies have the opportunity to build a long term relationship with a child at Downtown Academy simply by committing to eat lunch with them at the school once every other week. It’s a great time for you to invest in a child in a really special way. Volunteers commit to a minimum of a school year, but we hope you’ll stay longer!

Classroom Support

There is a lot of behind the scenes work that goes into each classroom and the school office. Helping teachers and faculty with administrative tasks is a great way to serve at Downtown Academy. Classroom helpers come once or twice a week at a designated time.
