Tutoring MPS students in reading!

About

Are you 55 or older? Do you like to work with kids? If so, consider becoming a reading tutor through Interfaith Older Adult Programs. Volunteer at an MPS Elementary School of your choice for 90 minutes once a week and watch a child succeed! No previous experience is required; just a love for helping children succeed.

You choose the school, day, time and grade level you want to work with. You will volunteer in the same classroom with the same teacher and the same kids for the entire semester. Build lasting relationships and show MPS students that you care! Orientations are scheduled every two weeks. All the basics, and much more, will be covered in a fun interactive way that will have you asking yourself why you did not do this sooner.
