Volunteers have the opportunity to work one-on-one or in small groups with students, establishing a unique and rewarding mentoring relationship in the After School Enrichment Program (AEP), which serves children in grades K-5, or the College Prep Program (CPP), which serves students in grades 6-12. There are also a few virtual tutoring opportunities available for the College Prep Program, this is allowed if approved by the Volunteer Coordinator and Director of Education.
