Tutors develop one-on-one relationships, which make this volunteer experience such a rewarding and worthwhile effort. STAIR has an excellent, user-friendly curriculum that makes it easy for volunteers to follow with no outside prep time. Here's an example of a lesson plan. Volunteers must be a Freshmen in High School or older to volunteer. Students under 19 must have a parent or guardian sign a consent form.

Volunteer Commitment:

  • Attend one 2-hour training class.
  • Observe with another tutor one afternoon before being paired with a student.
  • Tutor a student one afternoon a week, committing to a 2 hour timeframe (we follow the Birmingham City School calendar).
  • Pass a background check.

Substitute Tutor

If once a week is too much for you right now, and you are available on short notice, sign up to be a substitute tutor. 

We will not be hosting any more volunteer orientations until August of 2017. Please feel free to fill out the form below and we will contact you in July with orientation opportunities!
