Bright Side needs a fresh rotating roster of volunteer teachers to join our Neighborhood for its workshops! We are striving to host regular quality programs with high volunteer and community involvement. If you are passionate about making a difference and want to get involved, please contact us.

TIME COMMITMENT 開課時間
Prefer consecutive courses that can be taught in progression so the children will build on their skills. This has panned out to approximately a workshop for a quarter. If you have a few people who can get together to teach the course you can also alternate shifts to head up there! Also, if you just send me an email with what you want to do I can probably match a few teachers up and we can see how to move forward to work together.
If it’s music lessons we prefer teachers to regularly teach approximately twice a month.
WHAT IS PROVIDED TO YOU:
Venue, course materials. If needed, a team of passionate volunteers, logistics, project coordination, photographers.
There are dozens of cute kids in all ages and we can sort out additional volunteers to assist you and make this a fantastic project for all. We’ve had people volunteer before and they’ve walked away with an amazing experience to be able to show the youth and other volunteers their skills! The way forward into the future is developing a community and relationships with those around us.
