Do you have a busy schedule but still want to serve the community??!!

Mentoring and Tutoring Opportunities!! Create your own hours around your busy schedule.

We currently need 25 men to be mentors to the children in our program. We currently have a wait-list of women waiting to be paired with girls, but will probably need more female mentors starting in April. We pair IU students with a child of the same gender for a year commitment as a mentor. The mentor must spend an average of 3 hours a week with the child, not counting winter, summer, or spring breaks. Some of our boys have been waiting close to a year to get mentors, because we have not had that many male applicants. We have a large number of female children who have recently moved and also need mentors. Mentoring is one of the easiest ways to make a difference in a child’s life. Just by hanging around them and incorporating them into your life, you can make a major difference in their lives. Please contact Monte Simonton at msimonto@hotmail.com for more information.

We tutor children between the ages of 4-18 with their homework. We do tutoring Mon-Thurs from 5:30-7 p.m. and Friday from 4:20-5:30. We need help with tutoring children in all grades. We could also use help in developing assignments for children to do when they do not have homework that would increase their literacy and math levels. We are tutoring about 30 children a day and need more volunteers. Please contact Monte Simonton at msimonto@hotmail.com for more information.
