Teaching Assistants In Public Schools

Teaching Assistants in Public Schools (TAPS), is a community service organization that sends Brandeis volunteers to local Waltham Public Schools. Under the Brandeis Waltham Group umbrella, TAPS aims to enhance the educational experience and enrich the lives of both the Waltham and Brandeis communities.  At these schools, volunteers are placed in classrooms to work in various capacities, based on teachers’ individual needs. Our volunteers mentor students, facilitate lessons and build deep relationships with students. We've sent volunteers in local schools for the past few years with great success and each year our program is met with increasing enthusiasm in the Brandeis and Waltham communities. 

Population Served: Waltham Public Schools’ teachers and students

Community Partners: Plympton Elementary School, Stanley School, Waltham Family School, Prospect Hill Kids Club
 
Transportation: If the school is not in walking distance from Brandeis’ campus, transportation is by Joseph's Transportation shuttles. 

How to Participate:
School Teachers, Administration and Brandeis Students
