CSV supports the academic and personal success of Cambridge public school students, K-12. Our volunteers provide tutoring, mentoring, help with college applications, read-aloud fun, and more. Our programs provide free help in every Cambridge public school. All of our volunteer opportunities include a stable relationship and require a regular commitment, typically 1 hour per week, before, during, or just after school.
