PEP needs you! The PEP after-school elementary program is a collaboration between the Learning Resource Center of Polk County, Inc. and the Public Education Partnership of Winter Haven, Inc. Currently, the after-school program is near student-enrollment capacity and is in need of volunteers to help at the center. This is a great opportunity for those looking to give back, high school students working on community service hours, college students looking for experience, and those with free time on their hands.
The program runs Monday-Thursday weekly from 3:30-5:30 p.m. with the exception of school holidays. It is set up so that students in grades 1-3 attend on Mondays and Wednesdays, while students in grades 4-5 attend on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Groups of students rotate through four stations each day (playground and snack, computers – Moby Max, homework, elective) with one of the six teachers. The PEP Center is located at 203 Avenue R NE in Winter Haven. Students are bused to the location and attend free of charge.
PEP is searching for committed volunteers who can dedicate their time to help students succeed.
- Playground assistants, 3:30-4:00 p.m. — 4-6 volunteers
- Teacher assistants (rotate with students), 4:00-5:30 p.m. — 6 volunteers
- Stationary assistants (help with homework; assist 1:1), 4:00-5:30 p.m. — 2-4 volunteers
We hope that you will consider this opportunity and help us spread the word. If you are interested in volunteering with PEP, please contact Audrey Nettlow at Audrey@whpep.org and RebeccaT@LRCPolk.com.
PEP needs YOU as a partner in order to do a great job for our young learners!
