The kids are hitting the home stretch of this school year, and we're looking for more tutors!
The best tutors we know are YOU, so we are guessing that your friends have mad skills, too. To continue to provide great, free homework help through the end of the year, we are aiming to recruit 50 new potential volunteers!
Sign up to volunteer with us at after-school tutoring between now and June 1st, and bring a friend to be your buddy and tutor with you at your table.
Or, if you can't make it in yourself, send your buddy and we'll pair them up with a stellar buddy that will show them the ropes.
Both you and your buddy will receive a gift bag of 826 Boston goodies when you come in
, so please RSVP in advance. If you're a current volunteer, sign up
on our volunteer calendar to tutor as usual. If you're new to us, and signing up to check out the program, click here
to sign up and let us know if you have a buddy or need one.
