6th-12th grade students; all subjects

Virtual and in-person opportunities available!

Academic learning gaps are another symptom of COVID-19... Do you want to make a difference in a child’s academic success?

The Black United Fund, in partnership with Bradley Angle’s Healing Roots program , is looking for volunteers to tutor grade-school students, with emphasis on subjects in Math, Reading, and/or Writing.

Tutors will meet with their students on a one-on-one basis at least 1-2 times or up to 2 hours per week. We ask that volunteers commit to 6 months (coinciding with the school year) in their tutor role.

Opportunities to tutor more than 1 student are available. Volunteers with backgrounds in teaching (or an applicable field) or who have a keen knowledge in current teaching methodologies for math, reading, and/or writing preferred.

If interested in volunteering as a tutor, please contact Melissa Slanetz, Volunteer Coordinator, .
