Carnegie Clubs (At a glance):

  • A criminal background is required for the Carnegie Center AND for your chosen school at https://webapps.fcps.net/volunteer/
  • This is a semester-long commitment but we encourage tutors to stay with the same child for the entire school year if their schedule allows.
  • Tutor recruitment is on a rolling basis- we have students waiting for YOU!
  • You may tutor according to subject preference, but it is not always a guarantee.
  • The coordinator will supervise the tutoring sessions, and provide all materials and activities.
  • All tutors are allowed to take 1 free class at the Carnegie Center per season.

For more information, or to sign up to become a tutor, please contact Children’s Outreach and Volunteer Coordinator Erica Cook by phone (859) 254-4175 ext. 28 or via Email at Erica@carnegiecenterlex.org.
