Volunteer opportunity description

Star Learning Center is looking for volunteer tutors for its Summer 2022 program. Each tutor must be able to commit a two-hour block of time once a week for all six sessions of the program to be matched with a student. Tutors complete an online application form, and if we have a potential student, the applicant is asked to submit a brief writing sample and background check and to schedule an online interview. If matched with a student, the tutor receives a one-to-one orientation before starting.

Summer tutoring takes place Monday through Thursday afternoons. We have evening hours until 7 pm on Mondays and Tuesdays. The full schedule appears on the application. Interested individuals should visit https://goddard.org/programs/children-and-youth/starlearningcenter ASAP and fill out the Tutoring Application: Summer. 

Star provides one-to-one tutoring for underserved students from across NYC in grades 2-12. About 60% of students come from families where Spanish is the primary language spoken at home. Star operates both a School Year and a Summer Program, with separate application processes for each. Approximately 250 students come to Star for weekly tutoring each year. Star also supports its students and families through advocacy, outreach and connection to other Goddard programs that allow each student to reach his or her full potential.


Volunteers must be in 10th grade or older (age 16 or above). 

All volunteers tutoring remotely must be comfortable using computers for online Zoom sessions.

Volunteers interested in working with elementary age students must be willing to assist with math as well as literacy skills.
