About the Program

The Elementary After School programs run Monday through Friday from 2:45 pm - 5:30 pm at Franklin, Jefferson and Sunnyside elementary schools in Pullman during the academic year. The program also offers half day and full day programming for school holidays. These programs are for children ages 5-12 years of age. 

Volunteers give homework assistance, interact with children during recess, have opportunities to teach educational curriculum and gain valuable experience working with school-age children. We ask that all volunteers commit to at least one day per week over the course of the semester, rather than completing a set number of hours and leaving the program.


To apply, you will need to turn in a volunteer application. This application can be turned in to the Y office or emailed to volunteer@palouseymca.org. The after school programs are licensed through the Department of Early Learning (DEL) and volunteers will need to submit a DEL background check to the Y.
More infomation can be found at http://www.del.wa.gov/requirements/info/background.aspx. This is usually a two step process, an initial submission and confirmation, and then most of the time they require fingerprinting. These costs are the responsibility of the volunteer. Background checks are valid for 3 years.
