Ready to Volunteer?
Committed, caring volunteers/tutors are the driving force that make these programs work!
Here's what you need to know:
- It's easy! Materials are simple and straightforward. You don't need teaching or tutoring experience.
- It takes motivation! A strong belief in the importance of education is critical.
- It's fun and rewarding! Your help will make a difference in these students' lives.
While most volunteer activities do not require special skills, all volunteer efforts require patience, flexibility and a positive attitude. Training is always provided to new tutors.
Here's how it works:
- Complete an application
- You will be scheduled at the desired school (Fall to mid-May)
- One day/week as a regular tutor or
- Once every 4-6 weeks as an active substitute
- You will receive training on the program curriculum and processes
Tutors will typically volunteer one day/week for 1-2 hours, depending on the school and the program they are volunteering for. A greater commitment is possible and always appreciated (e.g. two days/week). Flexible scheduling is possible and can be accommodated.
