Summer CUBS will run during the weeks of of July 9 to July 27. Volunteer mentors are needed over the course of two daily shifts (8:15 to 11:30 and 11:15 to 2:00). Mentors are welcome to serve for only one shift per day, or both shifts as their schedules permit. Please consider committing to a full week where possible. Two days (or similar) per week over the course of the program is also a really great option. 
Youth 14 and up are welcome to volunteer without an adult, although adult mentors are also needed. Children under age 14 are welcome to volunteer with a parent or other known adult (for example an adult-age sibling, a youth leader, scout leader, etc.).
Mentor training will be offered from 9-12 on Saturday, June 16, at the Worcester Area Mission Society – 6 Institute Road, Worcester. Attendance is strongly encouraged, and teens who attend the full training AND sign up for/ follow through on a commitment of at least one full week of volunteering will be awarded a gift card.
Can’t make it to the training? WAMS will make a condensed version of the training available on video and a Mentor Handbook will also be provided to all. All mentors, whether they attend the training or not, will be asked to take a short quiz based on the handbook content.
