Invest in Youth: Students at Roxhill (and elsewhere) need you

One hour, once a week. If you can spare that small amount of time, you can make a big difference for students at schools including West Seattle’s Roxhill Elementary! Mona Delgado e-mailed to let us know about this request:

Here’s your opportunity to give back. For one hour, just once a week on your way home from work, you can go into a nearby Seattle grade school and tutor a child who needs a little extra help with his or her studies. Invest in Youth is looking for additional tutors for the 2012-2013 school year.

Participating in Invest in Youth requires a tutoring commitment of one hour per week (with several holidays) for the duration of the school year. Upon joining the program, you will be paired with an elementary school student in 3rd, 4th or 5th grade and work with that same student for the entire year, getting to know their strengths and weaknesses while tracking their progress from week to week. It is an extremely rewarding experience for both students and their tutors!

In 2012 we will be working with the following schools:

· Tuesdays, Beacon Hill International School (2025 14th Ave S.), 3:15-4:15pm
· NEW! Tuesdays, Roxhill Elementary School (9430 30th Ave SW), 3:45-4:45pm
· Wednesdays, Daniel Bagley Elementary School (7821 Stone Ave. N.), 3:45-4:45pm
· Thursdays, Thurgood Marshall Elementary School (2401 S. Irving), 3:50-4:50pm

Orientation sessions for new tutors will take place the week of September 24th with tutoring beginning the week of October 1st and lasting through June 2013.

    I have been tutoring with Invest in Youth for over 12 years now – an amazing organization ! Well-run and SO EASY to tutor. Just show up once a week and focus on the student. The rewards from seeing that student grow under your guidance are wonderful.

Sorry, comment time is over.
