A love for education grows in the Bronx!

  • Bronx, NY, US

Masa invites you to build a brighter future for the children of the South Bronx! By tutoring for two hours a week you can be a part of the change. Join us in transforming communities through education —one family, one child at a time!

We are seeking dedicated volunteers to provide tutoring and homework help to elementary, middle-school and/or high-school students at our South Bronx community center.

Masa's After-school Program operates on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 6 PM—8PM. At the program, students primarily receive homework help, develop their reading skills, goal orientation/mentoring and begin to develop growth mindsets. They also have opportunities to participate in art, music, and other enrichment activities.

Masa's 2015-2016 After-School Program (MAP) will start on September 28, 2015 and run through early June 2016. Volunteers are admitted on a roll-in basis.

Requirements are as follows:

  • Ability to volunteer consistently for at least one of the following days: Monday (6 PM - 8 PM); Wednesday (6 PM - 8 PM); or Friday (6 PM - 8 PM).
  • Able to commit to volunteering for the all or most of the 2015-2016 academic yeawr (college students who will leave NYC in May will be considered). When working with children, consistency is the key to success!
  • Willingness and ability to serve as a tutor/homework facilitator to elementary, middle-school students and/or high-school students either in an individual or small group setting.
  • Attend mandatory Masa trainings and events (provided advance notice and multiple options for scheduling).
  • Provide feedback on student progress and/or concerns to Masa staff.
