Are you enthusiastic about helping St. Paul’s young people learn and committed to empowering others by sharing your skills and experience? Be a Study Buddy in CommonBond Communities’ 1:1 academic mentoring program at Torre de San Miguel Homes or help in Homework Center or the Teen Program. In Study Buddies you’ll be matched with a young person in grades 1-8 and meet weekly to support his or her school success by helping with homework and tutoring in literacy and/or math. In Homework Center or the Teen Program, you'll team with staff and other volunteers to help students with homework. You'll be supported by talented staff while you help close the achievement gap. It's fun, sometimes fast-paced, and a great way to support student success in St. Paul!
