After-the-Bell is staffed by more than 100 volunteers each year who share their time and interests with students.

Please view our annual report for a complete listing of our volunteers.

After-The-Bell volunteers help out in many ways as activity facilitators, assistants, snack servers, desk helpers, and substitutes. Volunteers can also help the Kennett After-School Association by serving on the Board of Directors or on committees that include Finance, Program, Fundraising, Special Events, and Information Technology.

Volunteers provide a safe, supervised environment where students can enrich their education, learn new skills, and strengthen their self-image through fun, adult-monitored activities. By volunteering you will be positively impacting the lives of those students who may otherwise have nowhere to go after school is dismissed and before their parents get home from work.

Volunteers include:
  • Parents, family members, and friends
  • Retirees
  • Local professionals
  • Senior citizens
  • High-school and college students
Organizations including like church groups,environmental groups,senior citizen communities and scout troops also frequently offer on-site and off-site activities with us! Find out more about our program


Recruitment is ongoing, but volunteer commitments to serve for specific cycles are just one or two hours a week for six weeks. For more information on volunteering, please contact the After-The-Bell office (610)268-5889 or email the Program Director at afterthebell@kcsd.org.
