HOW YOU CAN HELP

We also need volunteers to help the school on an ongoing basis in a number ways:

Due to COVID-19 options for volunteering are limited for the 2020-2021 Academic Year. 

  • TutoringDue to COVID-19 all tutoring this academic year is virtual. the school relies heavily on volunteers to tutor students after school and sometimes on weekends. If you are interested in tutoring, please contact Christina Shea, Literacy & Learning Specialist at 857-22-2448 or cshea@cristoreyboston.org.
  • Assisting with Clubs, Activities and Sports: If you have a special talent that you would like to share with our young people, please contact Dan Curran, Director of Athletics at 857-220-2474 or dcurran@cristoreyboston.org. 
  • Leadership Advisory Council: The LAC is a dedicated group of young professionals who contribute to the mission of the school by helping secure job placements for our students, introducing new friends, helping plan friend-raisers and fundraisers, and tutoring. The group meets quarterly, and particularly assists the school in preparing its annual Academic Signing Day event. If you are interested in joining the group, please contact Lynne Polcari at lpolcari@cristoreyboston.org
  • Lunch Servers: Due to COVID-19 we are not seeking servers at the moment. We need adult volunteers to help serve lunch to our students from 11:00-1:30 Mondays through Fridays. If you can come in for any or all of these times, please contact Carla Ostine, Assistant Business Manager, at 857-22-2470.
  • Library Aides: Due to COVID-19 we are not seeking aides at the moment. We need adult volunteers to be able to help in our Library with re-shelving books, book returns, book check-outs and coverage of the Library. Times for this can be flexible, but during our lunch periods, we have our greatest need (11:00-1:30). If you can come in for any or all of these times, please contact Christina Shea, Literacy & Learning Specialist at 857-22-2448 or cshea@cristoreyboston.org.
