The Collaborative for Educational Services (CES) is seeking part-time Activity Leaders to teach educational enrichment activities in various After School programs across Western Massachusetts..
Who We Are: Experienced educators; passionate about serving all students; including those who may have not done their best work in a traditional text-based classroom.
We value: The provision of positive high-quality after-school experiences that help young people develop skills and confidence that will help them find success in school and in life. Social Justice and Equity work is central to our mission, especially in these times. We understand that all forms of oppression are damaging.

- Strengthen students' academic skills, and deepen their communication skills with adults and peers.
- Tie activities to academic learning, enriching the education of youth outside of school.
