The first step is to stop by the Special Services/Student Outreach Office in Room 101 of the Student Services Building and complete an application. You will then arrange a time you can take a tour of the school and meet the tutor coordinator. Once the coordinator finds a child that fits your schedule and interest, you will return and begin tutoring.

What if I make a mistake?
Tutoring is a time of learning. If you get something incorrect, your student will learn that everyone makes mistakes.
What if I cannot commit to volunteering every week?
Sign up to be on the Adopted Schools volunteer list. We will call you when there is an opportunity for you to volunteer at the schools.
