Make a positive difference in someone’s life-become a math tutor.
Make a powerful positive difference in another person’s life. Volunteers are needed to tutor and teach adult students in elementary and high school level math (from multiplication through linear equations). LEAP, the Richmond Library’s adult literacy program, provides vital GED preparation for adults who want to improve their academic skills. The program matches volunteer tutors one-to-one with adult learners. The tutoring pairs focus on the student’s individual learning goals, and in the process, develop a relationship that makes a positive impact on the volunteer, the student, and the community.
As LEAP serves the community, we recognize that volunteers are one of our most vital and powerful resources. LEAP has both daytime and evening opportunities available but currently has a greater demand for daytime volunteers. Volunteers must be 21 years of age and have a high school diploma (or equivalent). Because we do believe that success is based on building relationships, we ask for a minimum of a 6-month commitment for at least 4 hours a week. In addition, successful volunteers are flexible, dedicated, and empathetic to the students.
Volunteering for LEAP is a great way to learn new skills, affect positive change, and have fun.
