About Mentor/Tutor in After School Program

Help students stay on target in academics and social skills!

The 21st CCLC: Transformers and Trailblazers need tutors to assist with the after-school program at 2 district schools: Henderson Ward Stewart (2nd -4th grades) and Armstrong Middle School (6th-8th grades). Our program will run during the 2017 Fall semester each Monday - Thursday, with the option to volunteer in one hour blocks between 3 pm and 6 pm. Below are the running times for each school:

Henderson Ward Stewart 3:00-5:15 pm
Armstrong Middle School 3:45-6:00 pm

Volunteers will be assisting the certified teacher by helping students with their homework and tutoring in Math, Science and Language Arts in a traditional classroom setting.
Volunteers for enrichment sessions such as art, music, dance and physical education are an asset as well.

We are asking that volunteers make a commitment of volunteering at least once a week for 1 hour for the entire school semester. (Please note that the Transformers and Trailblazers programs occur year-round, so volunteers are needed through the summer when possible.)

Students will develop a service project at a later date according to the needs of the teacher they work with. Projects should be discussed with lead teachers and have approval from Ms. Amanda Adams.

Application Process

Volunteers must be 18 years of age and complete an application and a background check. Options for obtaining the background check can be discussed upon request.
Please note that volunteer commitment is on-going and NOT available for drop-in service.
All volunteers must attend an orientation prior to volunteering. Our volunteer orientations have not been set for September at this time, but for more information, contact Amanda Adams at 662-615-0033 or
