    Are you passionate about youth leadership development? Are you committed to encouraging critical thinking in young people? Do you want to create an environment where all are welcome? Then Camp Quest Ohio is a great fit for you! Camp Quest is a summer camp organized around the principles of Secular Humanism - our motto is “Fun, Friends and Freethought”. We’re a week-long, sleepaway summer camp that combines traditional elements like field games, swimming, archery, and hikes, with our special ingredient: scientific and humanistic programming that educates, entertains, and inspires. We are particularly proud of the way that we empower campers through some of our programming that is more socially and developmentally oriented, like assessing personal strengths and examining social scenarios involving issues of difficult communication, managing emotions, mindfulness, and clarifying and pursuing goals. If you believe that camp can be for grown-ups too, we'd love to have you join our all-volunteer staff! Staff Dates (One additional training day for staff than camper dates) June Week: June 16-23 July Week: July 14-21 Questions about volunteering?

    A Good Start Family Literacy Tutoring program meets Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:00-6:00 pm. The children who enroll are provided with a snack when they arrive and then participate in group and individual tutoring based on need and available tutors. At 5:30 p.m. dinner is served. Tutors are welcome to stay and share the meal with the children. Developing a relationship of trust and respect is of upmost importance in A Good Start Programs. Our programs focus our efforts on providing quality literacy experiences for children and families in the Weinland Park and Linden neighborhoods. We accept children and families from all backgrounds, religions, socio economic groups, and family structures. Families are not asked to pay. Families are our partners in these experiences. Supervised by the Director of Tutoring, tutors will only directly tutor depending on their level of ability and their comfort with material and curriculum. Each tutor will be interviewed and attend a training where they will submit an application and a resume (if possible) to help match their skills and experiences with students and clarify their role in the program. Some tutors may be asked to observe, assist with non-tutoring tasks (snack/meal or materials prep) and/or support tutoring until their skills match a student's needs. Tutors will be required to have a BCI on file (funding for this may be provided). Interested tutors with education and/or experience in education, early childhood development or other related and applicable fields of study will be given priority consideration to provide individual tutoring. Please submit a letter of interest to agoodstart.maynard@gmail.com
