Volunteer application form

Volunteers have come to us from Bentley University, Brandeis University, and from Waltham and the surrounding communities. They have forged relationships and offered encouragement to our children and adults in their quest for better lives in the United States.

We are always looking for new friends who would like to share in our Waltham Family experience by:

  • helping preschoolers prepare for kindergarten
  • tutoring adults in speaking, reading and writing 
  • helping to facilitate our computer lab
  • helping staff meet administrative needs.

Time commitment can be for a single project or an ongoing relationship. To volunteer you must have a CORI background check on file.

If you are interested in making a difference in people’s lives through volunteering with the Waltham Family School, please fill out this volunteer application form
