Schools of Hope Literacy Tutor


Our mission is to work with school staff and community volunteers to improve literacy skills of elementary school students (Kindergarten - 5th Grade).

Through patience and encouragement, the volunteers often enhance the self-esteem and confidence in the children they work with, too. We see these results by noting the children's successes in their classrooms as well as the results of school-based and standardized tests.

Applications are now being accepted for the 2017-2018 school year. Tutoring usually begins in the middle of October.

Schools of Hope volunteers:

  • Are placed between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. (mostly in the morning) Monday to Friday
