FAQs

What is the time commitment?
Volunteers must attend a couple hours of training in January and then teach for at least one hour in a local classroom.

How does transportation work?
WTTM organizes it. Volunteers walk to closer schools and drive to schools that are farther away.

What should I do if a conflict arises on my assigned day to teach?
Contact one of the Whitman Teaches the Movement interns immediately. If possible, find someone to switch/cover for you.
