The Nest Academy

We have a need for volunteer tutors in person at our Academy to work with our middle and high school students! We can work with your schedule, but it would be school hours to come in: 9:45 am to 2:00 pm.

We have an awesome opportunity to work with some amazing kids from around the world as they continue to learn English and general subjects. We need a volunteer to come in and help mentor and guide these students. We are a nonprofit academy dedicated to serving the at risk, refugee, and immigrant population in the Charlotte area. We educate, empower and enrich our students with a tuition free, holistic education addressing the whole child: educationally, nutritionally, emotionally, socially and experientially . If you are available mornings or afternoons to help one to a few days a week we would love to meet you! We are located in East Charlotte. If you are interested, please let us know some available times to meet via Zoom first, which days you can volunteer, and please know we practice all COVID precautions and distancing.
