We want YOU to be a FLOC tutor.

About

More than 50% of DC students are not proficient in math, and nearly 50% lack proficiency in reading. YOU can change that! FLOC is currently recruiting volunteer tutors for the 2016-2017 school year. Our one-on-one tutoring program helps students achieve grade-level competency in reading and math. On average, students improve 1 year in reading or math competency after just 3 and a half months of consistent tutoring, while also gaining confidence in their abilities. We need your help! Each new volunteer allows us to impact the life of one more child. Training and ongoing professional support from staff are provided, so no experience is necessary!

However, we are looking for a few particular qualities from our tutors: Patience Creativity and flexibility A sense of humor! Fluency in the English language. ( Volunteers who are not native speakers of American English may be asked to tutor only in our math curriculum.) At least 16 years old, able and willing to commit 2.5 hours once a week for the remainder of the school year. We hope to make the best possible matches for each of our students and therefore seek a diverse pool of volunteer tutors. We especially encourage volunteers who are male, people of color, and/or first-generation college graduates to join us.

Programs are offered on weekday afternoons, weekday evenings, and Saturdays, and at sites in Adams Morgan, Congress Heights, Anacostia, Eastern Market, and Dupont Circle. How to Apply: Complete a volunteer application at www.floc.org/get-involved/volunteer. If you have questions, please contact Samantha Bailey, Recruitment and Outreach Coordinator, at sbailey@floc.org or 202-349-3509. Or follow us on Twitter (@FLOC_DC) or Facebook (/forloveofchildren) to get updates on volunteer needs and deadlines.
