One Learner. One Tutor. Changed Lives.
The work we do to build literacy skills within vulnerable communities is made possible with the help of caring volunteers. Our volunteers come from all walks of life and backgrounds. Previous teaching experience is not a requirement; a sincere willingness to help others is.
All volunteers go through an orientation that walks them though our programs, expectations and responsibilities. We then require all volunteers to complete four hours of classroom or tutoring observation before being paired with learners. Because the nature of our work centers around learners and tutors building a personalized approach to the subject matter, tutors are asked to commit to tutoring for 2 consecutive hours once a week for a minimum of 6 months.
See below for our opportunities to get involved. Volunteer your time to help others, but don’t be surprised when it’s your life that’s changed.
