Join us as a Tutor. The more volunteers we have, the more individual help can be given to our students.
Our volunteers do more than help children with their homework, although that is the core of their efforts. College and high-school students serve as role models, encouraging the children to set high goals for their future, including earning a college degree. While the community volunteers vary widely in age and background, many are retired educators, from kindergarten teachers to college professors. They create a truly intergenerational mentoring program that inspires the children to value education and to become life-long learners. Tutors also inspire and learn from each other.
Some centers are structured with assigned one-on-one tutoring; others are more flexible. You may select a site where you feel most comfortable. In all of the centers you will get to know the children well, and you will have opportunities to chat with them, play word or number games, or do pleasure reading and craft projects after they complete their homework. In other words, you will become friends with them and, at some centers, with their families.
Volunteer tutors are always welcome and may sign up with CLASP throughout the school year. Please contact Program Director Maia Dean for more information.
