The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Peninsula is an expanded learning time non-profit serving over 1800 K-12 students per year. Our mission is to provide low-income youth of our community with the opportunities that enable them to graduate ready to succeed in college or career.
We are currently seeking volunteer tutors who will mentor and develop at-risk youth in our community, fostering intellectual and social growth. Tutors will help students with their homework in the subject area of your choice. We can use your time Mondays-Thursdays between the hours of 3:00-7:00pm and Saturdays from 10:00-1:00pm. While hours are flexible, we require a minimum commitment of 1 hour per week for a 10 week period. Tutoring opportunities are available with students grades K-12 in the communities of East Palo Alto, Menlo Park and Redwood City.
