Tutoring at CAN

CAN After School Program Volunteers help K-12 grade students with homework, reading, and additional academic and social-emotional enrichment activities. There is also some free time to play and make meaningful connections with CAN's children and youth as a mentor and role model.

To have enough time to build those connections, volunteers should commit to serving at least once a week for the entire semester (3 hours a week.)

CAN’s After School Programs will start up again January 13, 2020 and operate through May 14, 2020.

CAN After School Programs operate Monday-Thursday from 3:30pm-6:30pm. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old, complete a volunteer application, background check (if 18+), and online training.

Choose one of six After School Program locations: Arrowwood Hills, Bryant, Hikone, Green Baxter Court, and Brick community centers, and Mitchell Elementary.

Description

Community Action Network (CAN) is a non-profit community based human services organization that serves residents in low-income public housing sites in Ann Arbor. CAN seeks to promote improved academic success, improved life and coping skills, psychosocial and developmental support, and enhanced quality of life for the children and families it serves. CAN offers numerous programs on site, including personal enrichment activities, individual counseling and support groups; Boy Scouts/Girl Scouts; and a comprehensive summer camp program. Academically-oriented programs, such as individual home work help and small group tutoring, is also offered by college students who coordinate their efforts with the children's teachers. Additionally, CAN provides access to a wide spectrum of social services, such as food distributions from Food Gatherers and public health education from Planned Parenthood. CAN also assists residents in mobilizing other available community resources by making referrals to such programs as Head Start, Sister to Sister, and Big Brothers/Big Sisters. Finally, CAN organizes several on-site community events during the course of the year, including potlucks, picnics, and talent shows.
