VOLUNTEERS

Get involved

This program can credit it’s success to the many volunteers who dedicate a portion of their time and talents to tutoring.
  • Help change a child’s academic trajectory.

  • Feel pride as your student makes the honor roll for the first time.

  • See an improvement in your student’s self-confidence.

  • Assist a student in successfully completing homework or practicing a needed skill.

  • Work in a caring environment.

  • Observe a tutor and student giving each other a warm and friendly greeting.

  • Observe parents and students eagerly showing the student’s report card to the tutor or other available adults because the grades improved.

  • Hear parents telling how much they appreciate the program.

A background check must be completed. The background check is paid for by the church and is valid for three years. High school students are encouraged to be tutors in order to earn community service hours.
