Looking for Qualified Tutors for Virtual Tutoring for Low-income Studnets

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: UPLIFT

  • 9 people are interested

The Kids at Heart (KAH) program is one of Uplift's four programs. KAH offers virtual tutoring and mentoring for low-income children in grades Kindergarten through 12th. Now more than ever, we need volunteers willing to help those most impacted by the global pandemic and economic crisis. Most of our students live below the poverty line, and many speak English as a second language. Your participation in the lives of these children is significant. Many of our students struggle to do well in school, but the outcome of our combined efforts is priceless. With a judicious and compassionate mentor by their side, they will have a greater chance to succeed.

To be eligible for tutoring, volunteers must:

  • Submit a volunteer application at tinyurl.com/uplift-kah-tutor

  • Schedule a New Volunteer Meeting with the Programs Director at tinyurl.com/upliftmartin

  • Pass a background check screening

  • Attend a Kids at Heart Volunteer Orientation/Training

  • Commit to tutoring a child during the school year (September - June) for one hour per week

  • Have access to high-speed internet and a laptop for optimal virtual tutoring success


Please contact the Programs Manager, Carla Dorantes, at carlad@upliftsandiego.org for questions and inquiries.
