Student Support Volunteer Opportunities Include:

  • Lunch Buddy: Provide a mentoring friendship for a child.  Each volunteer is assigned a student to be their “buddy.”  The volunteer comes to school once a week to have lunch with their buddy, talk, play games or read.
  • Tutor: Assist students with homework, study for a test or develop their reading and/or math skills.  Each tutor  visits their assigned student weekly, witnessing the effect their participation has on the student’s educational progress.
  • Classroom Assistant: Come to an assigned class once a week for two hours (9:00 – 11:00 or 1:00 – 3:00) and assist the teacher in facilitating classroom activities. Responsibilities include individual tutoring, leading small group learning activities, art projects, checking papers and other helpful tasks.


Thank you for your interest in supporting A Child’s Place Students. We are no longer recruiting new volunteers for this school year. We will begin contacting new volunteers and hosting orientations for the 2017/2018 school year in early July, 2017.
