Volunteer Opportunities

Teach adult English classes

WATCH CDC is seeking volunteers to co-teach adult English classes.

Join our dynamic, fun classroom environment and support participants in reaching their goals! This is a great opportunity to have a real impact on the daily lives of immigrants in our community and to gain teaching skills alongside supportive colleagues.

Teachers will:

  • Lead classes focused on daily English communication.
  • Work closely with the Program Manager on curriculum and class goals.
  • Be available any morning (10AM-12PM) or evening (6PM-8PM) during the week, Monday-Thursday.
  • Commit to participating most weeks for a whole session (late June-mid August, September-December, January-June).

Tutor an adult learning English

Tutoring is a great way to help people in our community learn English while also getting to know someone from another country and culture. Learning English can have a substantial impact on an immigrant's life - it improves their job opportunities, increases their ability to connect with the broader community, and overall thrive in their new home.

Tutors will:

  • Commit one hour a week for at least one  month
  • Be matched one-on-one with a learner who has a similar schedule

 

To become an English teacher or tutor, please complete this online application. For questions or more information, contact Brian by email or phone at 781-891-6689 ext. 202


Other Ways to Get Involved

Expand our work place giving

WATCH is part of Community Works, a program that allows workers to take a small deduction out of their paycheck toward a nonprofit.  If you work for a large company that might be interested, contact WATCH and we’ll share information with your employer about this program.

Bring us your ideas!

If you have an area of expertise that you think WATCH could benefit from, let us know! It takes many volunteers to keep a small non-profit running and we love hearing new ideas and growing to incorporate our members’ ideas and vision.

To talk about your ideas, contact Daria Gere, Executive Director, by email or call 781-891-6689 ext. 200.

Spend a day at the office

If you have a day to volunteer or even a few hours and feel comfortable with office work, we’d love to have your support.  We have many tasks at WATCH to keep up with managing our volunteer database, researching resources, making copies, etc.

You’ll feel good that you’ve helped support WATCH’s important programs!
