Last Tuesday, I went to the Highland Park Elementary school volunteer training. Our congregation was well represented.
While there, I learned that there are 12 students at Highland Park (7 boys and 5 girls) who would benefit from the one-on-one relationship of a tutor. The students need the academic help, but they also need the adult interaction. Both are important. Two persons in our congregation are already filling such roles, but are their more? Are there some men in the congregation who could fill this role? One hour per week is the expectation, and it is a fair one. You could go first thing in the morning on your way to work, or over your lunch hour. The teachers will prepare the resources for you.
