About

At Mission St: Louis, we have a fantastic youth development program called Beyond School that works on site at St. Louis College Prep with 5th-8th grade students! Our Beyond School Program provides a safe place for children to go after school and in the summer. As a Beyond School Academic Mentor you will work directly with students with anything from math, literacy tutoring and homework help, to playing board games, leading sports activities, making crafts and more. On average, students in our program increase their reading ability by two months for every month they're with us!

Our Beyond School program is a year-round program, imbedded within the school day at SLCP. We are currently looking for Academic Mentor! We work with children on Mondays through Thursdays, 4-6 pm. Because we focus on building relationships, we ask that volunteers commit to coming in at least once a week for one semester (6-7 weeks).

This fall, Beyond School is expanding to a second location! Monday-Friday we wil be working at the St. Louis Language Immersion School: The Spanish School (SLLIS) from 3:30-6 PM in addition to serving at SLCP.
