Study Buddies is a free academic-support program designed for children in grades 1-8. A small group of children is paired with a Study Buddy, who is a generous volunteer student from a local high school or an adult from the community. In addition to providing homework help, the program also focuses on relationship building and mentorship.

We are very excited to be returning to in-person Study Buddies for the Fall 2021 session. To help keep everyone safe, we will be requiring each participant to follow these guidelines: wear a mask at all times, maintain 3 feet distance during all activities, and follow any additional safety rules created by the staff.

Tutor responsibilities include:

> Support assigned student(s) with homework and academic support
> Be a positive role model
> Commit to one evening a week for a full semester or school year
> Be an ambassador for Youth Services and its mission
