Bright Lights Seeking Summer Classroom Assistants
Bright Lights (BrightLights.org) has summer classroom assistant volunteer opportunities available for 9th – 12th grade students, college students and adults. Discover some fun for yourself while providing enrichment for students!
Classroom assistants play a valuable role in helping Bright Lights students in grades K-8 discover and pursue their passion in science, the arts, math, music and technology. Over 250 assistants are needed to work with Bright Lights teachers during all five program weeks: June 5-9, June 12-16, June 19-23, June 26-30 and July 10-14. No prior Bright Lights or teaching experience is necessary. Orientation sessions take place in May. Bright Lights main class site for Summer 2017 is Holmes Elementary (52nd and Sumner Streets). Additional classes are held at other community sites in Lincoln, NE. For those interested in an international experience, apply to be an assistant at Lux Middle School the week of June 19-23 when students from Japan join American students in class. Time spent as a classroom assistant can fulfill high school volunteer service requirements, such as those needed for Government and Politics. Students are credited 20 hours for helping with just one week long half-day class.
Apply at BrightLights.org beginning March 8. See class descriptions and schedule for all of the Bright Lights Summer 2017 classes at BrightLights.org. Apply early for best class selection. Student registration for the classes begins April 1. Questions about volunteering may be directed to: (402) 420-1115 Ext. 49 or email@example.com.
