In After-School Writing Lab, volunteer tutors work one-on-one or in small groups with students on homework, reading practice, creative writing prompts, and games.


**After-School Writing Lab will be run on Zoom for fall semester. Volunteers can work remotely.**

This is a virtual volunteer opportunity open to volunteers from the Twin Cities area.


Available shifts are Mondays-Thursdays, 3-4:30 p.m. and/or 4:30-6 p.m. Volunteers are asked to commit to one 90-minute shift once a week.


826 MSP is looking for volunteers with. . .

- passion for working with and learning alongside students

- desire to build healthy relationships and learning skills

- consistency and reliability

- enthusiasm for affirming students' identities, strengths, and imagination

- experience in (or willingness to learn about) working with students of color and anti-racist education


- Access to reliable wi-fi, and a laptop or tablet with Zoom


"Do I have to be an expert in all school subjects to volunteer?"

No. Tutors are not expected to have all the answers. What's most important is that you can work alongside students to help them find the answers themselves.


"Do I have to be a professional writer to volunteer?"

No. 826 MSP believes everyone is a writer-students and grown-ups alike! (For the record-professional authors also welcome.)


Volunteers are asked to complete a 90-minute orientation session and complete an online background check.
