ASAP/After School Activities Partnerships volunteers lead or assist in leading recreational activities –chess, debate, drama, and Scrabble – for kids in Philadelphia in schools, libraries, community-based organizations, or recreation centers.

Volunteers decide which of the four activities – chess, debate, drama, or Scrabble – they are most interested in and we provide training, assistance with background checks, supplies and support to prepare volunteers to lead or assist in leading their club. Volunteer orientations are held monthly so potential volunteers can learn more information about how the process works and get acquainted with ASAP. 

ASAP also has one-time opportunities for volunteers! If you are interested in a one-time experience, please indicate that on your form.

If you’re interested in volunteering with us or want to learn more, please fill out the form below and one of our staff members will be in touch with you soon.

To ensure the safety of our students, ASAP facilitates all necessary background checks for volunteers in compliance with Pennsylvania law. Effective September 7, 2021, all ASAP volunteers are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as recommended by the CDC.
