U.S. Dream Academy Philadelphia is seeking individuals interested in tutoring local youth between the ages of 8 and 14 (grades 3 through 8). Ideal candidates will be passionate about working with young people (particularly high-risk, underserved youth). Tutors will provide assistance with homework and offer academic instruction in the subjects of English and Mathematics.

Tutors will meet with their selected student during an afterschool program at G.W. Childs Elementary School in South Philadelphia. The afterschool program operates each weekday from 3:00 P.M. until 6:00 P.M., and tutoring activities will take place between the hours of 3:30 P.M. and 4:30 P.M.

The role is available September through June, and volunteers may serve for the duration of the entire school year or for a shorter period. A reference check is mandatory, along with the completion of both a Pinkerton Release and FBI Fingerprinting. Previous experience is not required, as participants will receive thorough and ongoing training.

For more information, please contact Mentor Coordinator Lauren Tankersly via e-mail at ltankersly@usdreamacademy.org or via telephone at 215-339-1092. To learn more about U.S. Dream Academy, please visit the website at www.usdreamacademy.org.
