Your Role as a Volunteer

We invite volunteers who are willing to commit at least once a week to engage with students from grades 1 to 8. You'll be matched with one or two students, or a maximum of three. Your journey begins by assisting students with their homework, followed by enriching sessions in ELA or Math. Our comprehensive resource bank, provided by Give Chances, ensures that you have the tools you need to create impactful learning experiences.

A Structured Approach to Learning

Our program not only supports students in completing their schoolwork but also nurtures their Math and English skills through engaging enrichment sessions. While most of our volunteer tutors are high school students, Lead Teachers with backgrounds in education or related fields oversee the program's management and supervision.

We're also proud to offer special classes in Art, Science, and Physical Education, collaborating with professionals and institutions to broaden horizons.

Don't miss this chance to be a part of something greater than yourself. Register today!
