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.
