Sanctuary for Families is New York’s leading service provider and advocate for survivors of domestic violence, sex trafficking, and related forms of gender violence. Every year, Sanctuary empowers thousands of adults and children to move from fear and abuse to safety and stability, transforming lives through a comprehensive range of services. Last year, we served nearly 17,000 adults and children through legal and clinical services, economic empowerment support, shelter and programming for children and youth.
Sanctuary is currently seeking volunteer tutors to volunteer within our Tutoring Program. The Tutoring Program offers one-hour, one-on-one, once-a-week tutoring sessions between a child or adult client and a volunteer tutor. These sessions cover a variety of academic needs and goals including homework help and basic literacy/numeracy all the way up to GED prep and college-level tutoring. We have a particular need for volunteers available during the day as well as volunteers with language skills.
