Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Communities in Schools! Communities In Schools Milledgeville/Baldwin County (CISMBC) is a Non-Profit organization whose mission is to surround students with a community of support empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.
CISMBC is looking for individuals who would like to make a positive impact on the youth of our community by helping students in the public school system of Baldwin County during the school day.
In our two primaries (k-2nd) and two academies (3rd – 5th), volunteers assist students with literacy skills. We will train you in the programs we use. At the middle school (6th – 8th), volunteers primarily focus on helping students with math skills, from basic skills to pre-algebra. In Baldwin High School and at Georgia College/Early College, volunteers take a traditional tutoring role helping students with specific subjects.
In response to COVID-19, there are two virtual volunteer opportunities available in addition to the traditional in-person volunteer roles. The virtual options include 1) virtual readings in which volunteers record themselves reading a children’s book that will be shown to the elementary school students and 2) virtual tutoring in which volunteers will meet with students in a live, online format to assist them with their coursework. Be sure to specify if you would prefer virtual and/or in-person means of involvement.
We ask for a commitment of at least one hour a week if you are tutoring. If you are unable to commit to one hour a week, CISMBC also needs volunteers to help with the other programs and activities. Simply request to be placed on our special events list. You must also be at least 18 years old to be involved in a tutoring/mentoring option.
After attending an online CISMBC orientation (~30 minutes) and agreeing to abide by CISMBCs policies, you can choose your volunteer option and schedule based on our needs and your availability.
If you want to make a difference, please email us to schedule an orientation.
