About

The Harbor House afterschool program is in the heart of San Antonio, one of the most diverse districts in Oakland. Our elementary school students need dedicated volunteers who will partner with them as they work hard to overcome the educational opportunity gap. Through a mentoring relationship and tutoring, you can help our students achieve much more than they could on their own.

Our afterschool program runs Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:15-5:45 and Wednesdays from 1:40-5:00. You can volunteer for just the academic portion of our program (Mon/Tues/Thurs 4:00-5:00 and Wed 2:15-4:15) or hang out with our kids for the whole program as they play, eat, and participate in daily clubs. If you would like to volunteer but can't come during our program hours, please still reach out to hear about other time-flexible opportunities.

If you have special interest or skills in a certain academic subject, there are opportunities to be paired with 1 or 2 kids for individualized, dedicated tutoring. Many of our students are newcomers to America and/or well-below grade level, and would grow in leaps and bound with a regular individual tutor.
