The Fresh Air Fund

Virtually tutor a middle school student through the 2021 fall semester!

Volunteer tutors work with 1 middle school student (12-15 years old) who is enrolled in The Fresh Air Fund's Career Awareness Program. Tutors help students with academic skill-building and homework assistance. Each tutor and student select one subject to focus on through the semester, keep a journal and select a book to read together.

Volunteers with ability to tutor the following subjects are greatly needed:

  • Math
  • Science
  • English
  • Languages
  • Social Studies

An online resource library will be provided for tutors to use while working with your students

Virtual tutoring sessions are held once a week from 6-8 PM. Volunteers have the option of choosing to volunteer on a Monday, Wednesday OR Thursday evening. We are recruiting new tutors for the 2021 fall session which runs from October through December. A 13-week commitment is required. Volunteers need to interview with Fresh Air Fund staff before participating, complete an online background check, and attend an orientation the last week of September.

Please email vthornton@freshair.org for more info.

The Fresh Air Fund’s Career Awareness Program is designed to help New York City students understand the relationship between school and work and how to make choices that will determine their futures. The year-round program includes weekend camping trips and an intensive three-and-a-half week summer session at the Career Awareness Camp - Camp Mariah. Students also participate in job shadowings that offer close-up views of various career fields and a career fair.
