While students may find their schedules too full to make the large time commitments required of the core team, Kite offers additional and more flexible opportunities to volunteer with us!
Become a Rise tutor
We’re always looking for new and passionate tutors. This part of our education project enlists university students to tutor students in low SES high schools in Math, Science, and English.
As a tutor, you can attend homework clubs at:
Britannia Secondary School on Monday and Thursdays from 3:00 to 6:30 pm.
Windermere Secondary School on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:00 to 4:15 pm
Tutoring schedules are flexible and there are rideshares available from UBC. Funding for gas is provided for tutors who are able to drive to and from UBC and the homework clubs.
Hand Out Some Joy with Bumpin Bakery
Bumpin Bakery is a unique opportunity for youth who wish to gain a better understanding of the downtown eastside(DTES) in a positive environment. Bumpin Bakery does this through sharing fresh pastries and new perspectives with the residents of the DTES. Every Sunday morning at 10 am, volunteers ages 6-24 from across Vancouver join the Bumpin team at the corner of East Hastings and Main St. to pass out hot coffee and baked goods. We believe that each cup of coffee poured is a relationship forged.
Volunteering with the Sunday Handout is on a week-to-week basis. We encourage you to reserve a spot as space is limited to 20 people! Sign-ups are done first come, first serve by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please let us know the day you will be joining us in the subject line.
