Youth Tutoring Summer Program

The Neighborhood House youth tutoring summer program provides a combination of fun, hands-on learning projects, academic retention activities, and team-building games. In addition to daily activities at the center, a highlight of our program is regular field-trips to destinations around the community.

Volunteers will work with students one-on-one and in small groups. Each day you will assist with summer retention activities (such as learning games and independent reading), themed projects (such as art or cooking), and active games (such as kickball or scavenger hunts). You may also have the opportunity to chaperone on scheduled field-trips.

Volunteers should be able to commit to at least one day per week over the 6 week program.
