Beacon Hill International School needs volunteers to tutor kids who need additional academic help. Tutors must commit to one hour a week while school is in session. Each tutor is paired with a 3rd-5th grade student, and will work with that student for the entire year. Sessions at BHIS will be on Tuesdays, from 3:15-4:15 p.m.
Orientation sessions start this week, and tutoring will begin in October.
Neighbor Sara told us:
“My husband Dan and I have tutored with Invest in Youth at various elementary schools since 2004, and then joined the program at Beacon Hill International School four years ago when we moved to the Hill. We’ve had a fantastic time, each working with a student for one hour, once per week each school year and have really enjoyed getting to know some of the students and parents in our neighborhood. Over the years, a number of neighbors have volunteered with the program as well and I’d love to get additional community members involved with the program, providing great help and additional great role models for these kids right in their own backyards.”
