Yes I Can Volunteers will help second through fifth graders complete homework and work on study skills while serving as a role model to the youth.

We ask you to help make a difference in these children's lives by giving an hour of your time, on the days you are available, Tuesday through Thursday from 4:00-5:00 pm. Your time will give the children the support they need to be successful.

Duties vary, as tutors can either help with homework, or provide specialized assistance as either reading or math buddies. All tutors will be role models providing social and emotional support to the children.

Substitute and weekly volunteer position are available. We hope you choose to make a difference with us!
