Volunteer Tutors Needed by Beacon House in DC

tutoring

One of our greatest needs is for volunteer tutors for our FOCUS on Excellence, one-on-one math and reading tutoring program for 1-6th graders, as well as for our teen tutoring program. Both tutoring programs meet one evening a week and match a volunteer tutor with a child who work together on professionally developed curricula. Our tutors receive training and support from staff. Our tutoring programs are at the core of Beacon House’s mission. The local schools simply cannot sufficiently educate our children to give them a chance in life, and the majority of our children are not performing at grade level in reading and math. Each school year our tutoring programs demonstrably raise the reading and math skills of our children so that they are able to successfully compete with their more fortunate peers. It is guaranteed to be a very rewarding experience. For more information about volunteering contact Shannon Williams at swilliams(at)beaconhousedc.org , or 202-550-9606
