Urban League of Greater Madison: Seeking 75 volunteers
The Urban League of Greater Madison is currently seeking 75 volunteers for the Schools of Hope program before the year ends!
Schools of Hope provides one-on-one and small group literacy and mathematics tutoring, helping students improve their academic performance and readiness for high school, college, and career. As a key part of the United Way of Dane County’s Agenda for Change, the Schools of Hope program is operated by the Urban League in 12 middle schools in the Madison, Oregon, and Sun Prairie school districts.
Thanks to their amazing cadre of volunteers, they have already been able to provide individualized academic tutoring and coaching to 450 middle school youth so far this school year. However, as they enter the second quarter of the academic year, they have a growing list of over 75 youth waiting to be matched with a tutor and need your help!
You can make a difference by volunteering just 2 hours per week of your time. For example, over 80% of youth who participated in the Schools of Hope Middle School program reported that having a tutor helped them “get better grades,” “feel important in school,” and “keep trying on their schoolwork even when it is hard!”
They currently have youth waiting to be matched with a tutor at 12 different schools in Madison, Oregon, and Sun Prairie and a variety of times to accommodate your schedule.
