Tutor for a Child or Youth

Volunteer tutoring a youth

Provide a weekly volunteer tutor and mentor for a child with a learning disability or an at-risk youth (one term)

One of the biggest barriers to education for children and youth in Hamilton is the availability of homework help. There are many children and youth who deal with extra challenges and who don't have access to private tutoring. Our student volunteers meet individually with a child or youth once or twice a week, providing mentoring, encouragement, and homework assistance.

The commitment, enthusiasm, and support of Student Open Circles volunteers working with children in the Learning And Fun program is unparalleled. Many of our participants are facing significant personal challenges and our volunteers are stepping up to the challenge with real care and concern for our kids. It's a joy and a blessing to get to see these relationships blossom into real growth for our children. (Gladys Flores, Child & Youth Programs Coordinator, Welcome Inn Community Centre)
