About

Opportunity Overview: LEARNING CENTER TUTOR

Do you have a passion for making a positive impact in the lives of kids? The Kirkland Boys & Girls Club is looking for Learning Center Tutors who are excited about helping kids be the best they can be! Volunteers will assist the Club’s Education Director during "Power Hour," working 1-on-1 with elementary students who need tutoring help with their daily homework assignments. Volunteers might also be called on to help with various other duties, including but not limited to: assisting students with educational websites, basic Powerpoint/Word questions, playing games, coloring pictures, and reading to students. Training will be provided at a mandatory volunteer orientation, held at the Club (10805 124 th Ave. NE, Kirkland).

IMPACT

Statistics today show that 1 in 5 of America’s kids won’t graduate on time. Yet according to a Harris Survey, 90% of Boys & Girls Club alumni reported they earned a high school diploma or equivalent. Power Hour is one of the Club’s key programs, providing students the time, space, and assistance they need to achieve academic excellence. And our volunteers are a big part of making this time a success. It’s amazing what a difference an hour of your day can make in the life of a kid. Come join our team at the Kirkland Boys & Girls Club as we strive to "enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens."
