Our vision is that all young people are prepared socially, emotionally and academically for adulthood--help CommonBond young people have strong futures by providing academic and social support for a young person living at Torre de San Miguel Homes. Be a Study Buddy in our 1:1 academic mentoring program and support school investment and success by helping with homework and tutoring in literacy and/or math. You'll be supported by talented staff while you help close the achievement gap. It's fun, sometimes fast-paced, and a great way to support student success in St. Paul!
