St. Vincent and Sarah Fisher Center Children's After School Program is a free, personalized, one-on-one tutoring program for children in grades 1-6, designed to offer year round support, focusing on math and reading. The Children’s Education Program helps to bridge the educational gap for students who are motivated to learn and for parents who support their learning.

Skills and Interests:

  • A passion to help students succeed.
  • Knowledge of basic skills like reading, writing, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division (not all these topics are required).
  • Willingness to explain concepts in several ways, allowing for different learning styles.
  • Previous teaching or tutoring experience and holding a degree are not required.

Now is the moment to build a better tomorrow.

Volunteers act as one-on-one or small group tutors for children in grades 1-6. Tasks will include reading and language arts activities and helping children with basic math. All lessons, worksheets, learning games, and materials are prepared by staff and ready for the volunteer tutor and student to work on together.

The Children's Tutoring Program runs from 4 pm - 6 pm Monday through Thursday.

Volunteer when you can, daily, weekly, monthly.
