Become a Volunteer
AboutVolunteer tutors are matched with one of our wonderful K-8 children, according to their skills or interests. Together they work on homework, literacy or math for one hour each week. Tutoring takes place Monday – Thursday from 3:30-4:40 for the junior high program and from 4:30-5:30 for the elementary program. You choose the day that works best for you.
EligibilityWe welcome and actively seek adults and mature teens to help tutor children during the after-school and summer programs. Regular commitments from volunteers are needed whether it is once a month, every day or something between those options. View all current volunteer opportunities.
