The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The Family Learning Institute provides free, individualized, one-on-one tutoring for low-income and academically struggling 2nd-5th graders in Washtenaw County. Our volunteer tutors work with the same student, on the same day, at the same time, once a week from October 2018 through the end of the school year (June 2019). Our 2018-19 program will begin in October and end in June, following the Ann Arbor Public School schedule. We will need tutors at Lakewood Elementary, Lawton Elementary as well as Parkridge Community Center and other Ypsilanti school locations. Absolutely no tutoring or teaching experience is necessary -- all materials, training, and support are provided by FLI. So, if you are able to tutor one hour between 4 and 6p any week day, Monday through Thursday, AND ESPECIALLY if you want to help a young student be a better reader, we would love to hear from you! Our programs are free for all of our students thanks to dedicated volunteers like you! We look forward to having you join our FLI community!
