Volunteer & Internships
Due to the safety and security of the children we work with, Page 15 requires all volunteers and interns to complete a criminal background check. Page 15 processes and pays for every background check through First Advantage. Once your background check is cleared, your social security number is destroyed.
Do I have to be a great writer to volunteer?
Absolutely not! At Page 15 Parramore, we help our students with homework in a variety of subjects. We are always in need of good math, science, and foreign language tutors. As long as you have a passion for education and helping children succeed, Page 15 has a place for you.
How old do I have to be to volunteer?
For afterschool programs, we require volunteers to be at least 18 years old. For summer programs, we accept volunteers in grades 9 – 12th.
What’s the time commitment?
For afterschool programs, we request that you stay the full 3 hours of the program (2-5pm or 3-6pm), but can be flexible. For summer programs, we ask volunteers to sign up and complete at least one full week of camps; Monday – Friday from 8:30am – 1:00pm). For all other positions, we schedule volunteers as needed or as available.
Are internships paid?
Not at this time. Though unpaid, our internships are a chance to work with an ambitious, and award-winning local nonprofit. If school credit is required, we’ll gladly work with you to help satisfy academic requirements.
COVID-19 UPDATE [August 2020]: Our top priority is the safety of our students, staff and volunteers. Due to the ongoing pandemic, Page 15 is temporarily pausing our in-person volunteer opportunities until we can safely bring people back together.
