What’s it like to volunteer at Rock to the Future? Volunteer Scott wrote a guest blog post about his experience with us.
Rock to the Future programs are currently all operating online. We are looking for virtual volunteers to work with our students one-on-one during the school year – tutoring in school subjects, helping with instrument and music instruction, or just being a mentor. We prefer volunteers who can commit to a regular schedule, with a time commitment anywhere from once a month to several days a week. All volunteers who work with students must complete PA background and child abuse checks, which are free and may be completed online. You do not need complete background checks to attend a volunteer orientation to find out more information about volunteering with us. If you’re interested in volunteering with our virtual programs, please fill out our form below and we will contact you with our next available orientation date!
We are looking for people to help with:
MUSIC: Help students on a variety of instruments and musical styles, including voice coaching, instrument lessons, and songwriting.
HOMEWORK: Assist students in grades 4 – 12 with a variety of subjects including math, English, writing, science, social studies, standardized test prep, and more!
ACADEMIC MENTORING: Volunteers are paired with a students to help them improve in their trouble subjects. Academic mentors have regular check-ins with the student and the academic coordinator about the student’s progress.
MENTORING: Be a positive role model and mentor a Philadelphia youth! Play games, chat about their day, talk about their future, and inspire the next generation of Philly musicians.
This committee supports Rock to the Future by providing ideas and support for a variety of events, fundraisers, and promotional opportunities. Committee members volunteer at Rock to the Future’s events and student performances, brainstorm sources of promotion and exposure for Rock to the Future, help us talk to interested new students and families at community events, help us connect with new partners and organizations, and act as our “street team.” This committee meets every month (usually the first Wednesday), either online or at Rock to the Future’s office in Kensington.
