Project One on One is an academic mentoring program for homeless children in Metro Atlanta.

We need volunteers for weekly tutoring sessions in locations including Atlanta, Marietta, Sandy Springs, and Conyers. Each session is generally around 1 to 2 hours but this varies based on location.

The mentor sessions are academically focused. You will find that most of the students are lacking in basic skills and the best way to help them is to fill in those gaps. Additionally, students may need help with their homework. We prefer to keep the sessions one-on-one, but this is not always possible due to limited volunteer resources. That's why it's so important to be consistent and reliable and to help us get the word out!

We call it a mentoring program because without a trusting, friendly relationship there is no getting through to a lot of these kids. They need skills, yes, but more than that they need the encouragement and attention that is crucial to healthy social development. As a mentor, you can show your students that education is important and learning can be fun. There are few greater accomplishments than helping a struggling student learn how to learn!!

***Disclaimer: Unfortunately, at this time, we can only accept volunteers who are U.S. citizens and above the age of 18.
