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.
To educate and empower youth through relentless commitment to student-centered learning and personal growth.
The Metropolitan Regional Career and Technical Center, also known as "The Met School," is a state funded public school district that serves an estimate of 700 high school students in six small schools across three campuses in Rhode Island. (325 Public Street and 362 Peace Street in Providence and One York Street in Newport)
Our work is focused on relationships, relevance and rigor. The tools we use are real world learning, internships, individualized learning plans, a personalized environment, small school setting and advisories. We achieve our goals through strong relationships with parents, family, community, business, government and other educational institutions, thereby expanding the role of the school in the community and the community in the school.
Our school hours run from 9:00am- 3:00pm M-F and we are looking to recruit volunteers to provide tutoring support anytime during those hours. (The schedule would consist of your own flexibility and how many hours you are able to provide during the week. Ideally, we would like to have volunteers for more than 1 hour a week.)

I am an alumni of the MET School. I was the 3rd graduating class in 2002. My experiences as a student were nothing but phenomenal! I was able to pursue my passions and venture out in the world to obtain internships which allowed me to experience hands-on training in various fields of interest. As a part of my learning, I created several projects that focused on particular fields that I was interested in and presented my work to students and staff on a regular basis. As a student, however, I felt that we needed more support in the areas of Math, Science and Literacy. This is the reason why volunteers are so important to our school as they can give the extra support to students in these academic areas.
Now as the Coordinator of the Volunteer Program at the MET, I am able to fully understand just how much volunteers and tutors mean to our community. Our students are talented in their areas of interest, but also need help to refine their skills in Math, Science and Literacy.
