Behavioral Health - Working with Youth - Tutoring Club (1:1 Academic Encouragement)

Tutors connect with a child for academic support, building a positive relationship. Tutoring takes place after-school hours. 

Volunteer candidates must be consistent, positive, patient, flexible, and adept at appreciating “What’s strong” instead of “What’s wrong.” We are seeking individuals who are tech-competent, comfortable using Zoom, expressive, and possess clear diction – qualities that will be essential when engaging children through a virtual platform.

 

Commitment: 30 to 90 minutes, once a week for at least 8 weeks.
