The Village Project's tutoring program, The Mae C. Johnson Education and Cultural Enrichment Academy, is always looking for volunteers who have a passion for helping students achieve academic excellence and success in life. Volunteers from the community make a difference in the lives of the students, acting not only as their tutors, but mentors as well.

Tutor

As a tutor, you will bring your own enriching and unique experiences to the students, helping them to achieve skills for academic success and prepare for the next steps in their futures and education.

Your key responsibility as a tutor is to help students with various subjects. The students in the program range from 1st-12th grades and subject matter varies from social sciences, English, reading, math, writing, etc.

The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted children's learning, as many students have fallen behind in their academics, especially in reading comprehension and math- a trend seen nationally. Many of our students are in need of additional support to help them get to grade level.


*We ask that you make a commitment of at least one day a week. We are open Monday-Friday. Your commitment to the students is always noticed and always very much appreciated by them.

Experience working with children or tutoring is preferred, but not required.

Volunteers should have the ability to effectively help students in math, reading, comprehension, and writing.
