There are so many groups at Wesleyan working with children that it can be hard to choose just one. Aspiring tutors sometimes join the first program they hear about rather than selecting an organization based on the target age group, time commitment, academic subject, and program structure. To help you pick the group that’s right for you, the Office of Community Service is hosting an information session where representatives from several tutoring programs on campus will talk about their work and answer your questions. The session will take place on Thursday, September 11 at 7 pm in PAC 002.
Whether you’re providing homework help and dance classes at Green Street or doing long division at Macdonough School, tutoring and mentoring are fun and effective ways to engage with the community. If you receive Federal Work-Study, you may also get paid for volunteering with an OCS literacy program.
