Project Description

Are you interested in science? Here is a fun volunteer opportunity. YES is a PTA run after-school science program that creates opportunities for children to explore the world of science through a series of hands-on activities. The experiments span a variety of physical, earth and life science areas. Groups of four children work with a high-school student volunteer to complete the activity. Bowman PTA will be running the YES club for their 4th and 5th graders and we need your help. Club will meet on Tuesdays after school from 3:15-4:30 at Bowman Elementary School on Philip Road in Lexington.

5th grade dates are Jan. 7, Jan 14, Jan 21, Jan 28, Feb 4, Feb 11, Feb 25

4th grades dates are March 11, March 18, March 25, April 1, April 8, April 15, April 29.

We need many high school volunteers for each class/day. The hours will count towards community service. If possible we would like if you can come for all sessions for a particular grade. But we appreciate if you can only volunteer for just one of the days/session. If you are interested, please follow following steps to sign up.

Presence of the HS students is a real selling point for our 4th/5th graders who look up to you as very inspirational mentors. We appreciate your help and look forward to meeting you.
