About

Volunteers for the After School Program

We are looking for individuals that want to be a positive change in a child’s life. The children in our after school program not only need help in certain school subjects, but they come to our program looking for a therapeutic environment that is conducive to their learning needs and having the right tutor and mentor is crucial in achieving this.

Ideally, volunteers will not just provide educational support, but transcend the role of a tutor and act as a mentor to our youth to be a positive influence in their lives.

Candidates should be able to tutor in numerous subjects: math, English, social science, physical science, etc. Experience in tutoring or mentoring is not required, but appreciated. Volunteers will also assist TLC staff with other tasks and ongoing projects: clean up, event set up, food preparation, etc.

Consistency is a crucial quality that we seek in candidates. Good, solid, healthy relationships for our youth require a consistent foundation and intermittent commitment is not conducive to an environment that is trying to foster better attitudes. Moreover, we seek genuine caring from our volunteers.

Thank you for wanting to share your time.
