About Nutrition, Cooking, and Gardening Volunteer Teachers in NYC Schools

1ff97b020d70334d716324d5d08e005b0e050f16

The Bubble Foundation volunteer teachers teach nutrition and wellness classes to pre-K and elementary students in one of our partner NYC schools (currently in Manhattan, the Bronx, Queens, and Brooklyn). Volunteer teachers will use Bubble curricula to teach one or two interactive 45-min classes per week on topics relevant to food and health (e.g., cooking, nutrition science, gardening, agriculture, food literacy). Volunteer teachers are asked to commit to teach for the entire semester (January to June) and will be paired with a co-teacher with complementary skills to ensure classroom management and consistent coverage.
We provide complete training to our volunteers.
Required skills & mindsets:
• Commitment to the school and students as evidenced by reliability
• Enthusiasm for the subject matter of lessons
• Experience and comfort working with children
• Positive attitude about the program
• Willingness to provide clear feedback to help schools overcome challenges to implementing wellness curricula and policies
Helpful qualifications:
• Experience teaching pre-K/elementary students, ideally in a classroom or other group setting; experience need not be nutrition-related
• Experience working within schools serving low-income students
• Experience in nutrition, food policy, gardening, or cooking
Weekly time commitment:
2 - 3 hours per week on-site (two 45-minute classes, plus prep and clean up) during the school day. You will also likely spend one hour per week reviewing the lesson at your leisure to prepare for class.
