Getting involved with The Bridge Project is a great way to make a difference in your community. You will come away with a profound sense of respect for the children with whom you work and a wonderful sense of knowing that you added to a child's life.
This is a wonderfully fulfilling volunteer opportunity. Each volunteer is matched in a one-on-one relationship that lasts for an entire school year. Our youth can range from Pre-K through college. The Tutor and Tutee spend one hour a week together at one of four public housing neighborhoods.
Volunteers generally propose a day and time that works best for their schedule within the Monday through Thursday after-school through 800 p.m. time frame.
The Bridge Project provides training and ongoing tutor support. Tutoring sessions and staff communications with volunteers occur primarily in spoken English, therefore college-level English proficiency skills are required. Questions regarding language can be directed to Debbie Main at firstname.lastname@example.org.
