Tutors and After-school Volunteers Needed for Vulnerable Youth in South Raleigh

We at Passage Home are looking for tutors to come every Monday and Friday starting September 11th from 3:30pm-6:30pm to help us implement activities for the local kids an address some of their academic deficiencies. The volunteer tutors will engage with the kids, help us provide them with cultural enrichment activities and experiences and provide much-needed individualized help to students who can rightfully be called among the most vulnerable in the county. They will also help children navigate ReadTheory, an online reading comprehension educational tool. Many of these kids are in need of caring personalized support to help them succeed, as well as a neutral safe space in which they can flourish and develop without fear of third-party threats and outside harm. Our tutors and volunteers ensure that these youth have exactly that.

To get involved please contact Brandon Williams at bwilliams@passagehome.org
