Math Outreach!

A message from the department:

Looking to make a difference? Want to spread a love of math to
elementary and high school students?

We are looking for people to help us by volunteering for our outreach
and engagement programs right here in the Math Department.

Right now there is a growing population of people who see mathematics as
something unreachable and this starts in the elementary and high school
system. So many people have a fear, or even a hatred, of mathematics
and we are trying to change that.

We are working with local area schools and through the Math Outreach
programs already hosted by the Department to try and change this
attitude but we need your help!

You can volunteer for just one program or for a few hours each month!
The choice is yours. We are looking both for people to volunteer with
programs that take place here on campus but, more importantly, to go out
into the community.

All curriculum and training are provided and it is a great opportunity
to get involved and give back to the community around you. And, if you
volunteer for more than 10 hours, you will receive recognition on your
CCR, and it looks good on a resume!

If you’re interested please send an email to outreach@math.toronto.edu
and you can look at our website to see what kind of programs we offer:

We hope you’ll donate just a few hours of your time to help with this
ambitious, and life changing, cause!
