Children who are homeless are much more likely to struggle in school. Mary’s Place puts a special emphasis on providing additional support for the children in our shelter because we know that education is a ticket out of poverty for these students. We have a program that pairs volunteers with one student at a time so the children can have the help they need to work on their homework and improve their reading. Volunteers for Tutoring program must be 14 years or older. Reading Program volunteers must be 16 years or older. We ask volunteers to commit to coming once per week.
After-School Tutoring Program: Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays 4-6 pm (September – May)
