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 sessions each week on Tuesdays and Wednesday evenings from 6 to 7:30.

  • 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 410-382-4900 for more information.
Not enough time to be a tutor/mentor? You can still help recruit tutor/mentors at community events and through your networks, help with administrative tasks, or sponsor a student/mentor team with a contribution. Email northstar@mppi.org or call 410-382-4900 to learn more.
