- Volunteer Opportunity posted by The Fresh Air Fund
Times of day
A few hours per week
Long-Term (6 months-1 year)
633 Third Avenue
Volunteer tutors work one-on-one with a middle school student (12-15 years old) who is enrolled in The Fresh Air Fund's Career Awareness Program. Tutors help students with academic skill-building in math, language arts and social studies. Each tutor and student keep a journal and select a book to read together.
The program is held once a week from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm at The Fund's midtown office. Volunteers make a commitment to attend on Monday, Tuesday OR Thursday evenings. We are recruiting new tutors for the 2018 fall session which runs from mid-September through mid-December. A 12-week commitment is required. Volunteers need to meet with Fresh Air Fund staff before participating, complete an online background check, and attend an orientation on September 5.

The Fresh Air Fund’s Career Awareness Program is designed to help New York City students understand the relationship between school and work and how to make choices that will determine their futures. The year-round program includes weekend camping trips and an intensive three-and-a-half week summer session at the Career Awareness Camp – Camp Mariah. Students also participate in job shadowings that offer close-up views of various career fields and a career fair.
Since 1877, The Fresh Air Fund has unlocked the limitless potential of more than 1.8 million New York City children from low-income communities. Each year, thousands of children enjoy outdoor summer adventures through visits with volunteer host families along the East Coast and Southern Canada and at The Fund's five overnight camps in Fishkill, NY. Fresh Air children also participate in year-round leadership and educational programs.
