    What is Helping Hands?
    • As a Helping Hands Volunteer you will be helping an elementary student at one of the following schools: Oak Trace, Cary Ridge, Monon Trail, and Washington Woods.
    • Each WHS student will be matched with an elementary student and you will meet with that student each week.
    • These students were selected to participate in the program because their teacher has identified them as needing either academic or social skills help.

    History

    • This is the 8th year of WHS students participating in the program.
    • Over the course of 8 years we have had over 350 WHS students help make a difference in the lives of over 350 elementary students.
    • The program works with the Westfield Youth Assistance Program to help identify and work with students in need.

    Specifics

    • One day a week for 45 minutes you will meet with your assigned student and help them with homework, study skills, or playing a game.
    • The times for Helping Hands will be 3:45 to 4:30.
    • Oak Trace, Monon Trail, and Cary Ridge will meet on Wednesday’s.
    • Washington Woods will meet on Thursdays.
    • WHS students are responsible for their own transportation.

    Dates

    • The program will begin in October and end the week before Spring Break.
    • If there is no school we do not meet.
    • There will be an end of program party at each school and we will have a recognition celebration at WHS before Spring Break.
