Other Ways to Volunteer

Private Tutors 

We welcome tutors to assist with subjects ranging from beginning levels of math/reading/science to advanced high school levels. Tutors will be paired with a child who has received a C, D, or F in a core subject. We ask that tutors maintain a consistent schedule and volunteer at least once a week for an hour.

Group Projects

We can accommodate groups small and large to help with building-related projects (painting, cleaning, organizing) and special events for the kids (field days, health fairs, presentations, etc).  If you have a group of friends and/or coworkers that are available Monday-Friday to complete a project, please contact Kelley Seebeck at or 919-687-4517.
