Youth Tutoring

The youth tutoring program is an after school program for Latino students in grades 6-12 providing assistance with homework assignments, helping students master basic skills, learn problem-solving techniques and good study habits, and encouraging students to place a high priority on their academics. We seek to provide academic support, enrichment, and encouragement that will lead students to achieve and maintain academic success, culminating in graduation from high school and a desire for lifelong learning. Volunteers work with one or more students. Students are expected to be engaged the full hour in completing homework and projects, reading or other enrichment activities.
 
Volunteers
  • must attend an orientation session before beginning to serve and are required to sign a Volunteer Policy Agreement Statement and a Confidentiality Statement  
  • must complete WS/FCS Volunteer Background process and share your clearance with El Buen Pastor's Volunteer Coordinator (if you completed this check last year, you will need to use your account to resubmit your information)
  • are asked to commit to tutoring 2 hours a week during the school semester
  • must be enrolled in college level courses or have a post-secondary degree
  • should have basic proficiency with the internet and word processing, as well as basic geometry and math involving simple equations, fractions, decimals and percents. (Resource materials are available for all basic subjects.)
Our fall program will meet Monday – Thursday beginning Monday, September 21. Middle school program will be offered in the afternoon, with high school tutoring immediately after. Recreation and extended enrichment activities occur throughout these programs.
 
 
We are recruiting volunteers for fall 2015 now. Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Nick Bennett, if you are interested in helping out with our youth. Details are available here.
