Virtually support a small group of middle school students through the 2020 fall semester!

Volunteer tutors work with 2-3 middle school students (12-15 years old) who are enrolled in The Fresh Air Fund's Career Awareness Program. Tutors help students with academic skill-building and homework assistance. Each tutor and student select one subject to focus on through the semester, keep a journal and select a book to read together.

Volunteers with ability to tutor the following subjects are greatly needed:

  • Math
  • English & Language Arts
  • Science
  • Social Studies
  • Spanish
  • French

An online resource library will be provided for tutors to use while working with your students

Virtual 60-minute tutoring sessions are held once a week on Monday, Tuesday or Thursday evenings. Volunteers have the option of selecting an hour slot of 6-7 PM or 7-8 PM. We are recruiting new tutors for the 2020 fall session which runs from September through early-December. A 13-week commitment is required. Volunteers need to meet with Fresh Air Fund staff before participating, complete an online background check, and attend an orientation.

Please email vthornton@freshair.org for more info.

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.
