A Friendship Club volunteer tutor will work 1:1 or 1:2 to help pre-teen and/or teenage youth with their schoolwork, increasing the chances they will remain in school and successfully complete their education.

Transportation for the youth to The Friendship Club will be provided by either parent, staff or volunteers. Sessions last from 45min to an hour, preferably once a week. Tutor sessions are scheduled while school is in session, and put on hold over school breaks and holidays.

  • Comfort and competence explaining and teaching common core in English and Math
  • Wilingness and ability to work in partnership with The Friendship Club staff, the student and the student's parent/guardian
  • Patience - youth may not grasp a subject matter, or may be resistant to learning due to difficult circumstances in their lives
