What is an Academic Coach?
UPchieve's volunteers, also called Academic Coaches, offer academic support to low-income middle school and high school students using our online platform. These coaches work directly with students in UPchieve's online classroom to boost their academic performance, enhance their confidence, and prepare them for college. With a commitment of just 30 minutes per week, academic coaches can help students make progress towards their educational goals.

What is the time commitment?
There is no set time requirement to volunteer with UPchieve, and the scheduling is highly flexible. If a volunteer has a busy week, they can easily unselect their availability or disregard any requests for that particular week. Most academic coaches typically volunteer for only 30 minutes a week, which makes this opportunity perfect for individuals with a hectic lifestyle who still want to give back to their community.

How does it work?
UPchieve tutoring sessions occur within the platform's web app, utilizing a virtual classroom that matches one student with one coach. This virtual classroom provides a text-based chat and a whiteboard.

Who can be an Academic Coach?
Anyone can become an academic coach, regardless of background or prior tutoring experience. Training and support are available to ensure coaches are equipped to help students achieve success.

What subjects can you tutor?
There are over 20 subjects you can tutor including, Math, Science, English, College Counseling, Social Studies, and SAT & ACT prep.

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 middle and 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 that will allow students to request a volunteer at any time and be connected within minutes.
