Volunteer

Are you interested in getting involved with our community? Please explore some of the current opportunities below and reach out to the school with questions.

Host a Senior Intern:

All twelfth grade students are required to perform a 100-hour internship in a company or non-profit from February through May. Read more about our senior internship program here. If you know of a local organization that would be willing to consider a student for a meaningful internship, please contact seniorinternship@ccscfiles.org

CCSC Writing Center:

CCSC's Writing Center provides individual support to high school students on academic assignments, personal and creative writing, resumes, cover letters, college essays, and more. The Center is open Wednesdays from 1:30-3:30 PM during the academic year. Volunteers are welcome to come every week, once a month, or however best fits their schedule. Please contact Kathy Ennis (kennis@ccscambridge.org) for more information. 

After School Learning Center:

Learning Centers are staffed by CCSC faculty, but additional help is always welcome.  Work one-on-one or with a small group of students on Mondays, Tuesdays or Thursdays, from 3:45-4:45 pm

CCSC @ Night:

Support a small group of students who stay for extra help and receive dinner. CCSC @ Night is an opportunity for 9th-12th grade students to remain at school until 7:00 PM. Dinner is provided for all students who elect to participate. CCSC expects much from its students and CCSC @ Night provides them with a structured, safe, and quiet space to complete their required coursework.

Male and Female Mentoring:

The mission of the CCSC Mentoring Program is to create a loosely-structured, yet safe, space for students to:

  1. Establish long-standing, authentic relationships with positive adult role models outside their typical adult relationships (i.e., parents, teachers, coaches).
  2. Cultivate the habits and perspective necessary for college success and long-term professional and personal fulfillment.
  3. Engage in vulnerable, honest dialog about the challenges they face in their journey to becoming mature, contributing family members, friends and leaders in their communities.

Mentoring is done in a group setting rather than one-on-one as we believe all participants can learn from each other.
