The Learn To Be Foundation is a 501c.3 non-profit bringing free, 1-on-1, online tutoring to underserved youth around the nation.

We are looking for volunteer tutors to help some of these youth for an hour a week online. That means you can work from anywhere with a computer and some high speed internet!

Remember that one time in school where you were struggling and you got some help from friends, family or teachers?

The students we work with don't really have that opportunity. But you can change that. Visit some student profiles here: https://learntobe.org/students.

And if you're interested in applying, visit https://learntobe.org/apply.

We'll leave you with the profile story for a recent student who was admitted into our program:

"My son is a great student with excellent behavior but lacks the resources and additional support to improve his ability to comprehend 2nd grade reading and math problem solving. I am a single parent of two boys with a full time job and a part time job and I cannot provide my sons with the additional help they need to succeed. I struggle every day knowing that my sons education is not just in the hands of teachers and they rely on my help but I can't provide the help they need. My second grader tells me all the time that I confuse him more than the teacher. I really want to raise productive and rwsponsible young men but can't afford the time or cost for tutoring. I have to make a choice either shelter or education. It's just a horrible place to be as a parent."

We're looking forward to you joining us in our vision of providing every child with the skills needed to thrive.

About Learn To Be



Mission Statement

Learn To Be is a 501c3 non-profit bringing free, 1-on-1, online tutoring to under-resourced youth around the United States. We want to live in a world where all kids have access to a great education -- not just those whose families can afford one.


Learn To Be helps kids from under-resourced communities unlock their own potential by connecting them with free, 1-on-1 online tutoring. We believe that all kids should have access to an exceptional education - not just those whose families can afford one. Since 2012, our tutors have helped more than 7,800 students from low-income households and foster organizations excel in subjects ranging from basic math and reading comprehension to chemistry and precalculus. Unlike other free tutoring services, Learn To Be’s volunteers provide ongoing 1-on-1 support for as long as it takes for students meet their goals, resulting in an average test score increase of 15.8% and a GPA increase of 1.6. Learn To Be is committed to making the lives of kids from under-resourced communities easier, their opportunities greater, and their dreams bigger.
