Local groups seek volunteers
JustREAD, a nonprofit, community-funded literacy program, seeks tutors to work at least one hour a week to help middle and high school students with reading.
The program trains tutors to work one-on-one with students in a supervised classroom setting during the school year.
JustMATH, a community-volunteer math-tutoring program, needs volunteer tutors to work at least one hour per week to help students improve their math skills.
JustMATH also seeks a site coordinator to manage one of its middle school tutoring programs. The site coordinator will oversee the scheduling of students/tutors and manage tutoring sessions. The part-time, volunteer position requires approximately five to eight hours per week.
