Urban League of Greater Madison: Schools of Hope Middle School Volunteers Needed!
The Urban League of Greater Madison needs your help! The Schools of Hope Middle School program relies on nearly 500 volunteers each year to provide one-on-one literacy and math tutoring and coaching to students in the Madison, Oregon, and Sun Prairie School Districts.
Unfortunately, the harsh winter conditions this year have led to a slowdown in their volunteer recruitment efforts. For example, the UW Volunteer Fair – one of their largest volunteer recruitment sources – was cancelled this year due to the polar vortex.
As a result of these conditions, more than 100 youth are currently waiting to be matched with a volunteer tutor. THEY NEED YOUR HELP! All they ask is for a one-hour commitment of time through the remainder of the school year. They have openings at 12 different schools in Madison, Oregon, and Sun Prairie.
Stop by the Urban League on Wednesday, March 6 from 5:30-6:30pm or Tuesday, March 12 from 11:30am-12:30pm to learn more about how you can help make a difference! Both informational sessions will be held at the Urban League, 2222 S. Park Street. RSVPs are appreciated, but not required by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also apply to be a tutor online here.
