Interested in working with K-12 students? Below is your resource guide to connecting with our schools and with specific programs. For 20+ years, Williams has partnered with educators to create hands-on programming that serves the needs of children and their families in a host of schools in the areas of science, writing, mentoring, homework help, and more. Annually, more than 350 students participate and serve in K-12 schools in paid and volunteer positions in Williamstown, Lanesborough, North Adams, and Pittsfield. See the annual CLiA Chronicle for more information on specific opportunities. Check out Winter Study and other education-related coursework as well as summer opportunities through the Program in Teaching and the ’68 Career Center.

Our local schools once again welcome in person (and some remote) help and support from Williams students. Programs and opportunities are based entirely on the needs and capacities of our school partners and may vary from semester to semester. We continue to be in close contact with local schools and will update these opportunities as they evolve over the year.

For educational materials developed by Williams students and others make sure to check out our Elementary Resources and Middle and High School Resources.

Thanks so much for your interest, energies, and ideas!
