For Volunteers

Volunteers are essential to Masa. There are many ways to get involved, from outreach to our after-school program.

Meet Our Volunteers

Constance

Patience and persistence! Building the meaningful relationships I now have with students I’ve worked with for two or more years has been the most gratifying journey. The scholars I worked with are such smart, considerate, and kind individuals. They have such great potential. I know that if they work hard and believe in themselves they can achieve anything they want.

Fun, learning, and smiles: After three years of volunteering at the Masa After-school Program, my experiences are still life-changing. Tutoring can be challenging but joining Masa means you’re FAMILY: you’ll find the support you need to get the job done. Our family is invested in advocating for children and families, improving grades, sharing cultural experiences, and having fun. Masa rocks!

Rewarding. Energizing. Comedic. I joined Masa because I wanted to give back to the community and I wanted to become involved with a side of NYC I wasn’t familiar with. I tutor two students — they’re quite different from each other, but I love how consistently we laugh together. The most rewarding part of volunteering is seeing my students progress and forming a supportive relationship with them.

Exciting, gratifying, transformational: I have had the pleasure of working with different children and I have been able to make a small difference with each one. The most rewarding aspect so far is seeing the students you work with grow in front of your eyes. I have seen middle school kids transform into individuals who have integrity, are curious, always questioning, and who never cease to teach you.
