Northstar Baltimore takes a community focused approach to mentoring.
Make a difference in a Baltimore kid's life! Northstar Baltimore in cooperation with several southeast Baltimore schools in the Highlandtown and Greektown neighborhoods has an ongoing tutoring/mentoring program for elementary and middle school students. Volunteers meet with their students at one of three sessions each week -- Tuesday afternoons 2:45-4:30, Tuesday evenings 6:00-7:30, and Wednesday afternoons 2:30-4:15.
Volunteers work with their students on homework and teacher-assigned materials, with focus on math and literacy, throughout a school year. This program has a successful record of keeping kids interested and learning in school.
In addition to the weekly 90-minute tutoring sessions, there is a group activity planned each month -- an art project, a visit to a local art exhibition, rollerskating, etc. -- designed to develop community and build strong ties and lasting connections.
Background check is required as we are working with kids! Apply now at www.mppi.org/volunteer-applications or call 443-808-1103 for more information.
