Before working at any of our Iowa City school programs, volunteers must complete the Iowa City Community School District's Background Check Form and Volunteer Disclosure Statement. Bring completed documents to 305N Communications Center.
IYWP VOLUNTEER HANDBOOK
Learn all the basics with this comprehensive handbook created specially for IYWP Volunteers that includes tips on getting started, classroom discipline, how to write a lesson plan, and tricks for when an activity isn’t going as planned.
Check out the radical IYWP Wiki full of fun classroom activities that are broken up into categories like icebreakers, large-group activities, and kinetic activities.
To get a sense of the sort of work we do with kids, please peruse the collection of IYWP publications available for free online.
And visit the IYWP Office in 305N Communications Center where we have enough markers, colored pencils, paper, crayons, scissors, clay, chalk, and glitter to entertain a small horde of creative children.
