The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The Family Resource Center at Neighborhood House High Point is looking for volunteers to work 1-on-1 or in small groups with students in 1st to 5th grade to help them with homework completion, reading and other academic skill building activities. We will run two sessions on Mondays. The first session is from 3:00-4:00pm and the second session is 4:00-5:00pm. Volunteers can sign up to assist students during one, or both sessions.
This program will start on September 24th with a kick-off party for each session hosted as an opportunity for parents and students to meet volunteer tutors and for Neighborhood House staff to review the schedule and expectations. Tutoring sessions will run from October 1 to December 10.
