What is an Academic Coach?
Academic Coaches are volunteers on our platform that want to provide on-demand academic support to low-income high school students. You'll work hands-on with students in UPchieve’s virtual classroom to help them improve their grades, increase their confidence, and prepare for college. With just 30 minutes a week, you can help students move one step closer to achieving their academic goals!

What is the time commitment?
There is no minimum time commitment to volunteer with UPchieve. The hours are highly flexible and there is no set schedule. If you have a busy week coming up, you can simply unselect all your availability on the schedule page or ignore that week’s requests. Most volunteers contribute on average just 30 minutes a week. This opportunity is perfect for individuals with busy lives that still want to volunteer and make an impact.

How does it work?
UPchieve tutoring sessions are done within our web app. It takes place in a virtual classroom that pairs one student with one volunteer. The virtual classroom includes a whiteboard and text-based chat. You can more about the position here and apply here.

Who can be an Academic Coach?
Just about anyone! If you’re a current college student or college grad, chances are you can help students with at least one topic on our platform. You do not need any prior tutoring experience. We provide training and support to ensure you are prepared to help students.

Mission Statement

Volunteer remotely with UPchieve to make a difference in children’s lives while developing your professional skills!


UPchieve is a nonprofit organization that provides underserved high school students with access to free, online, and on-demand tutoring and college counseling. We believe getting help when you need it should be simple for all students - not just those with educated, financially stable, and supportive parents. That is why we are developing an app which will allow students to request a volunteer at any time and be connected within minutes.
