All over Snohomish County there are school kids who have trouble with reading or other areas of their schoolwork. You can help by being a Power Hour volunteer at a Boys and Girls Club.
As a Power Hour Volunteer you will assist staff during the Power Hour program. General roles may include reading with children, assisting with homework, tutoring, and providing support to children struggling in academics. Volunteers will be working with school-age children, kindergarten through high school. A background in teaching or tutoring may be helpful to volunteers, but is not necessary.
The Power Hour operates Monday through Thursday at a B&G Club near you.
This opportunity is posted by RSVP (Retired and Senior Volunteer Program) whose mission is to help those over age 55 find a meaningful volunteer experience.
