Inspiring Minds, a 50-year-old educational non-profit, is searching for volunteers to helping a child succeed in school. Opportunities include in-school tutoring with students K through 5 th grade.

Our programs work in tandem with school faculty and are designed to provide students and volunteers with great opportunities to grow and learn.

We are currently in greatest need of volunteer tutors to assist students in grades Kindergarten through 3rd grade. Volunteers work in the classroom, with small groups no larger than 4, practicing activities provided by the classroom teacher.
