About

Our Mission:Ozanam provides safe and nurturing environments so at-risk youth and young adults can be successful.

Ozanam Pathways Wichita Transitional Living Program (TLP) is seeking volunteer tutors and homework helpers to help a group of youth succeed academically. If you are at least 21 years old and enjoy teaching as well as learning, sign up to become one of our tutors who meet weekly in a community-based setting to help a group of youth in our program with their studies. The recommended time commitment for this position is 1 to 2 hours per week. Many of our boys and girls need extra help academically, and time spent with volunteers can improve their grades and study skills. Tutoring sessions are held during the school year (August 24, 2016 - May 17, 2017) on Thursday evenings from 4:30-6:30 p.m.

Examples of some of the subjects that need to be covered include:

  • Reading and comprehension

  • Writing

  • Basic math

  • Pre-Algebra, Algebra I & II, Geometry

  • GED Preparation

  • Other subjects as needed

  • Due to the nature of our work, prospective volunteers will be required to submit to a background check. Once that clears, the individual will be required to complete a confidentiality agreement upon acceptance of the volunteer position.

Interested volunteers should contact Jessica Hutton, Family and Youth Manager at Jessica.Hutton@ozanam.org or by calling (316) 682-4000. Please include your name, phone number, availability, resume/list of experiences and interest in the email.
