Help students access tutoring support they need! Volunteer to be an online Study Zone Plus Rover!

During covid-19, our popular Study Zone tutoring program is moving online and we need dedicated volunteers to help us host our tutoring program for elementary through high school students in a virtual meeting space. Use your observational and coordination skills to help keep Study Zone Plus a safe online space!

Rovers move from room to room observing and acting as extra eyes and ears for the KCLS librarian on duty. Rovers are prepared to fill in as the Greeter in case of any absence or if additional traffic management is needed. Study Zone Plus sessions are 2-hours long and the sessions are separated for grades K-5 and grades 6-12.

Volunteers should be Washington State Residents, and will need to pass a Washington State Patrol Background Check. The volunteer commitment is two hours, at least one day per week for an academic semester (September-January, February-June or the July-August summer session). Volunteers will need a computer are laptop to run Zoom (desktop version) and be able to use the Zoom tools. Training will be available to learn the Zoom platform.

Applications to be a Study Zone tutor are accepted throughout the year. Training and support provided. The program is closed during school holidays. Academic community service credit is available for students (must be a junior or senior in high school or an adult to volunteer). The Study Zone program is offered as a free service of the King County Library System.

What volunteer Study Zone Tutors say about the library version of our service:

"Being a Study Zone tutor has been very fulfilling. I love to work with kids, helping them become more confident in school. The best thing about Study Zone for me has been seeing students happy when they finish their homework, as well as being a role model for them."

"Study Zone has given me the opportunity to help students, like me, in a meaningful way. It's nice knowing that you changed a little bit of someone's life."

"I really enjoyed making a connection with my students. This is an incredible program, and I am happy to have been a volunteer for the KCLS library system."
