Volunteer Center

Toberman welcomes Volunteers!  Often, volunteers like to start out in one of our ongoing projects and then use their creativity to develop a new and exciting project.  It’s up to you!

Toberman Academy Volunteer

We are seeking youth volunteers who are juniors or seniors in high school, at a minimum, to provide an engaged activity with our kids or sports activity. The goal is to teach the youth the purpose of the activity, be it music, art, dance, science, volleyball, soccer or reading stories. Show the youth how to do the activity and keep this interaction with the group once a week for the school year. We need at least a once a week committment Monday thru Friday from 4:00pm to 5:00pm.

Adult volunteers can assist within the classroom by helping youth with homework stations, reading, engaging by asking questions about the homework and identifying if the youth comprehends the assignment. Homework is structured from 3:00pm to 3:45pm each day. Our attempt is to initiate the homework process but if it isn't completed, the child is expected to work with a parent at home. This role could potentially lead to becoming a mentor, working one-on-one with a selected youth to build a positive relationship. Our mentor program will be beginning sometime before January 2013. If you are interested in volunteering, mentoring and being a part of Toberman Academy, please call me to set up an interview appointment at 310-832-1145 ext 115.

Toberman Evening Meal Program Volunteer

This is our most popular and interactive program! It allows a group or individual to pick one day a month to come serve a hot meal to our children at 5:00 pm. The group purchases the food, then prepares the food, brings all the paper goods to feed approximately 55 children, then serves their food to them. It's so heartwarming to see them smile and say "Thank You!" when they receive your food. A balanced meal is appreciated, as Toberman encourages “healthy eating” habits in our youth.
