DC Tutoring & Mentoring Initiative

The DC Virtual Tutoring & Mentoring Volunteer Fair is a great opportunity to meet, talk to, and sign up with local mentoring and tutoring programs that need your help! Two out of 3 DC students are reading below grade level; thousands more need mentors.

We'll have partner nonprofits who need help in-person and virtually; in the mornings, afternoons, and evenings; and with elementary, middle, and high school students. Participating organizations include College Bound, For Love of Children (FLOC), AARP Experience Corps, Raising a Village Foundation, and many more.

About DC Tutoring & Mentoring Initiative

Location:

2437 15th Street Northwest, Josephine Butler Parks Center, Washington, DC, DC 20009, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide a tutor or mentor for the 60,000+ students reading below grade level or in need of additional academic or non-academic support in the District of Columbia and, in the process, create a stronger civic culture where we all take more responsibility for one another and for the community as a whole.

Description

We work with 40 partner tutoring and mentoring organizations and schools to help recruit volunteers for them. The foundation for our work is one-on-one canvassing and "civic conversations" with people at farmers markets and other public events and spaces: Only 31% of students in DC are reading at grade level. Teachers, schools and volunteer organizations can't fix education by themselves. Any time of day or day of the week, we are likely to have partner organizations that need help in neighborhoods that are readily accessible to potential volunteers. If we all take a little more responsibility -- typically 2 hours a week -- we can begin to transform educational outcomes and create a model for other communities trying to find shared purposes to bridge the divisions of class, race, and ideology.
