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. We encourage parents of high school students to attend orientation with their child. Parents must sign a consent form for students 18 or younger.
- 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 between the hours of 3-5PM from Sept-April.
- Pass a background check.
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.
