Volunteer with LEAP
Just a LITTLE of your time can make a BIG difference! If you have:
hour/week - you could tutor one of our students in grades 1-8 who need help to become a better reader. Our tutoring volunteers use an online curriculum called Reading A-Z which provides each student/tutor pair with activities and reading selections that provide the student with just the right level of challenge to improve. Our tutors are supported by our Tutoring Coordinator, a reading specialist who recently retired after teaching at the Hill Center for over 25 years. Most of our tutors have NO previous teaching experience.
hours/week - you could tutor for two sessions - either two hours one night per week or one hour for two nights each week. Tutoring is held Tuesdays and Thursdays with two back-to-back sesions, 5:30-6:30 and 6:30-7:30pm.
hours per week - you could become a teaching assistant at Nuestra Escuelita, our preschool located at St. Luke's Church, 1737 Hillandale Road. Teaching Assistants primary responsiblity is to PLAY with and TALK to our kids! Volunteer assistants come one morning/week 8:15am -12:30pm, Monday - Thursday.
