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.
Winegard Elementary School will provide all students with an inviting, safe environment that encourages the academic and behavioral skills needed to be successful in society.
Here at Winegard, 87% of students receive free or reduced-cost lunch. Many face family, housing or language barrier issues.
Mentoring and tutoring have been proven to help improve students' school performance. We are looking for responsible adults who can come work with a child at school once a week throughout the school year to help them with attendance, behavior and course performance.
As a mentor or tutor, you will be part of the Schools and Communities: Together for Tomorrow program, a special initiative of the U.S. Department of Education, the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Partnerships, and the Corporation for National and Community Service, which seeks to support Title I public schools through volunteerism.
