Other Ways to Get Involved

Adopt a Classroom  a cool way to get involved if you don’t have a ton of time on your hands, but you have a group of friends or co-workers who want to volunteer with you. You form a team and take turns rotating as classroom assistants (see above). This opportunity will provide you and your friends with an endless number of conversation topics after hours.

Teacher-Scientist Partners are typically STEM professionals whose skill set matches something students are working on at TAF@Saghalie. You’ll work with students (and teachers) regularly, helping them make connections between what they’re learning in the classroom and what they’ll use it for in the real world. If you’ve thought it would be cool to be a teacher but you couldn’t live with the salary, this is your chance to make a rewarding commitment.

Being a Teacher-Scientist Partner requires us to have a relationship with your company; some of our company partners even let you work on this during your work day.

Mentors meet with a TAF@Saghalie student once per month to help them with homework, college prep and applications, and more. The only requirement (besides the background check!) is that you’re a college grad yourself.
