Support Student Success from Behind the Scenes.
Help students overcome barriers to success by becoming a Scribe. There are times when a student is unable to complete an exam/test due to a disability. A scribe would write down verbatim what students say for exam/testing purposes. Readers would read the test questions aloud to the student. There are times the same person would complete both tasks during an exam/test.
This is a good opportunity for a volunteer who loves being in the classroom and has an affinity for working with individuals who have a disability.
Skills: Good, legible penmanship. Clear speaking voice, with appropriate inflection.
Times: Dependent on student's need. Volunteers are most needed during the academic year from mid-August through mid-May.
Locations: Opportunity is available on our main campus, A-B Tech South and Madison site.
All A-B Tech volunteers must complete a volunteer application, background check and attend a short one-hour new volunteer orientation.
