Please sign up for a date here to bring refreshments: Happy Cart Sign up

TUTORING:

One of the primary ways we've helped out in the past has been through in person tutoring and test proctoring. With COVID precautions in place, no external visitors or tutors are allowed in the building. We are thinking through ways to be creative in our approach to tutoring. Schools will be focused on the way to balance in person and virtual students for the remainder of the year, so tutoring is on pause until we are asked to resume. In the meantime, if you are interested in being a tutor, there are steps to take to get ready for when the school gives us the go-ahead. The first thing you need to do is contact Lyn Hoyt (lynhoyt@gmail.com) and she will send you to the volunteer page through HG Hill. You will need to get a background check and go through a virtual training, both available through United4Hope.
