In-school Tutoring and Mentoring program connects well-trained volunteers to struggling students in one-on-one and small group, in-school, literacy, and math tutoring sessions. Inspiring Minds views tutoring as the direct and clearly defined work to support the students' academic skill development and mentoring as the more indirect work aimed at cultivating caring positive relationships which will boost student confidence and promote academic achievement.
Inspiring Minds trains and support community members as in-class volunteers in Providence's schools. Volunteers are assigned to groups of no more than 4 students in grades Pre-K through 5, to support students in developing a positive academic attitude and practicing literacy or math skills.
Volunteers must be:
* Over the age of 18
* Available at least 1 hour per week between the hours of 8:00 AM and 3:00 PM
* Commit to a minimum of one semester
* Attend an orientation
* Submit to a background check
* Be outgoing, friendly, and passionate about making a difference in the lives of young people.
