Volunteer Opportunity: After School Enrichment Coordinator(s)

McKinley’s After School Enrichment program is in need of one or more motivated volunteers to coordinate our After School Enrichment program beginning Spring 2022.   Please note that ASE will not run a Winter Session due to lack of space and a lead volunteer. 

If you are interested in this volunteer opportunity, please reach out to . Thank you!

As we finish up our After School Enrichment Fall Session I wanted to give a very big THANK YOU to Jessica Servin who has been the ASE Volunteer Coordinator and has done an incredible job organizing and providing fantastic opportunities to our students.  This is Jessica’s final session and we appreciate everything that she has done.  Thank you!
