You can make a difference in the life of a child
Children in 15 area schools look forward to working with RSVP tutors each week. Anyone can be a special helper to these students...all you have to do is commit at least 30 minutes per week. Frequent interaction with the volunteers creates important one-on-one relationships for students with a trusted adult, increases confidence, and improves grades.
Senior volunteers help students to learn to read with the use of flash cards, games, and other available resources. Some volunteers choose to work with individual students or small groups of students. There are many unique needs in our schools, and a variety of assignments to meet each volunteer's talents.
