Thanks for your interest in our tutoring program.  Our mission is to support the academic, social and emotional growth of students impacted by homelessness.  

Volunteer tutors come from a variety of backgrounds and professions and range in age from young adults to retirees.  They work with students in grades K - 12.  Tutors are paired with a student and work one-on-one for one hour a week.   We offer free training and provide educational workshops, support and guidance throughout the semester.  Many of our tutors stay for years as they see first-hand the impact they have on students who need a consistent and caring role model to help with homework, school projects and academic challenges. 

Tutors must be 18-years-old to tutor independently; otherwise those ages 14 - 18 must be accompanied by an adult. 

Volunteer TUTORs are required to attend one of the following
