The Salvation Army Burbank, 300 E. Angeleno Ave, Burbank, CA 91506
We want all of our kids to have happy, positive and beneficial relationships with the adults that come into their lives. That means that we want our Homework Club Helpers to make sure everyone is safe, but to do so with a good attitude. You must understand how to talk to children and relate to them while maintaining a level of authority and professionalism. You will be asked to supervise various activities such as homework time, gym recreation, free time, etc. Must be available between 3-6pm weekly. You will need to pass a background check, complete an interview and fill out the Protect The Mission volunteer packet.
