HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Youth living in affordable housing communities may not always have access to opportunities for after-school programs. By helping students with homework and reading, you will be helping other kids succeed in school and feel more confident in their studies!

DESCRIPTION

Assist youth living in an affordable housing community in San Jose with school work, reading, fun activities, and computers. We are looking for motivated youth to help our younger students with their homework. All you need is a positive attitude and the ability to commit to volunteering one day a week for at least two semesters.


ITEMS NEEDED

Transportation to/from our affordable housing unit in San Jose AND a positive attitude!


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

This opportunity is most appropriate for high school students. You must be able to commit to volunteering once a week for at least two school semesters (about 3-5 months) consistently.
