Volunteer with WESA

Most volunteer opportunities at WESA are for recurring weekly shifts as either a tutor or a squash coach. Our minimum commitment for these types of positions is one session per week for one month (only four sessions!) This way volunteers will develop a stronger bond with students and gain a better understanding of how the program runs. For information about breaks and off-days, please visit the WESA calendar.

If you are unable to commit to a weekly position, please contact Kate Frost about additional volunteer opportunities.  There are many other ways to help that don’t require coming in!

 

Volunteer Responsibilities

Don’t know how to play squash? That’s OK, you don’t need to know anything about squash in order to volunteer!

Academic Tutor: School comes before squash. Students will spend over half of each practice receiving help on their schoolwork. Academic tutors will work with a maximum of 4 students in a group or individually to help them complete their homework and extracurricular academic activities. Experience teaching kids is helpful but not required.

Squash Coach: Squash coaches will work with a maximum of 5 kids on court. Many of our students are beginners, so it is important that coaches maintain a fun and productive atmosphere. Coaches must be competent squash players and able to efficiently run drills.
