826 VALENCIA VOLUNTEER TUTORING

826 Valencia is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting under-resourced students ages six to eighteen with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write. Our services are structured around the understanding that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention, and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success.

Our main goals are to close the academic achievement gap for underserved youth in the Bay Area, provide the tools and resources necessary for success in school and beyond, connect caring adults to young people in need of individualized support, and make the path to college and career less of a leap. With this in mind, we offer a range of programs, all free of charge, for students, classrooms, and schools in the Bay Area. Our project-based approach allows students ownership over the writing process and strengthens their ability to express themselves clearly and in their own voice.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES:

Volunteers are the heart and soul of our programs. We're looking for incredibly helpful people who are relentlessly positive, see all students as having potential, and are able to promote a love of learning. Folks with an average of 1-3 hours per week are encouraged to apply to become tutors and youth mentors to our students this 2016-2017 school year. We have a range of volunteer roles to fill, from homework and writing tutors to creative workshop leaders and more. Please visit our volunteer page to learn more about the diverse opportunities available: http://826valencia.org/get-involved/volunteer/. The majority of our volunteer shifts occur on weekdays between 9AM-6PM, though we do offer some evening and weekend programming. We are currently in high need of volunteers who are comfortable tutoring math, who have availability between 2PM and 7PM on weekdays.

Requirements for working with youth:

  • Available between the hours of 8:00AM and 3:00PM, Monday through Friday
  • 18 years of age or older
  • Able to provide or obtain proof of a negative TB test or clear TB risk assessment from within the past four years
  • Willing to submit to a LiveScan background check
  • Excited about supporting the development of young learners!
