As one of the nation’s few models of dropout prevention through an accelerated curriculum approach, The UCAP School offers wonderful volunteer opportunities for educators, community supporters, and others.


Imagine yourself:

  • Working one-on-one to help a student understand their math homework.
  • Helping teach photography in the streets of Central Falls.
  • Joining a committee to rewrite the Student Handbook to ensure student rights.
  • Assisting a clean-up team of students along the Woonasquatucket River.
  • Helping raise moneys for the Beyond U that help our kids succeed.

The environment can be challenging, but the options are limitless and the rewards are awesome!
