JaxTHRIVE is a youth-led, non-profit organization with a mission to educate and inspire refugee and low income children. For this fall of 2022, we are offering in person (for volunteers in the Jacksonville, FL area) and virtual mentoring/tutoring opportunities to help students with their homework. We are asking mentors to commit to at least one hour each week during a time that is convenient to the tutor and student.

How does the program work?

Each volunteer must commit to meeting with their mentee for 1 hour per week for the duration of the academic year (September through December), attend a virtual orientation and training, and provide the program director with feedback throughout the term. Volunteers can negotiate their own schedule (AM or PM)

As a mentor, you will:

  • Tutor your student at least once each week
  • hone your cross-cultural skills
  • expand your global network by meeting new people and making new friends
  • take on a leadership role
  • prepare for your future career by gaining valuable resume-building experience
  • make a difference in someone’s life

To participate, you must:

  • volunteer for a minimum of 1 hour per week.
  • be fluent in both written and spoken English.
