NOTICE: We have concluded volunteer onboarding for our fall 2022 semester. New volunteers will be notified about orientation sessions for spring semester in the beginning of 2023. We look forward to working with you in the new year!
From tutors who work one-on-one with our students, to those who support our events and fundraising activities, we're grateful for the generosity, dedication, and commitment of all our volunteers. Our volunteer program is comprised of a diverse group of respected and engaged volunteers who increase our capacity to fulfill our mission with their gift of service.

What does it take to be a tutor?
Each of us has our own set of unique skills, but not all of us have the combination of skills needed to be an effective tutor. We use a matching process to determine if someone would be a good fit. The first step is to begin to evaluate your skills, abilities, and interests to see if they match the qualifications we seek in tutors. Our star tutors demonstrate the following qualities:
Are at least 18 years of age
Are able to commit to tutoring for at least one 90 minute session a week for a period of 6 months
Are able to explain things using simplified language
Are patient, compassionate, supportive, enthusiastic, and reliable
Are able to follow directions to ensure consistency of instruction
Have a valid email address and regular email access
- Are willing to complete background screening
