You MUST also provide a BCI in order to volunteer in any school in any capacity.

MentorPlacement is for one hour/one time per week during school hours.

Mentors are caring adults who get to know and become a friend and role model to a student through one-to-one meetings. Meetings take place on school grounds, during school hours only. Individuals complete an extensive screening process that includes application, interview, reference checks, and National Background check. Training required and provided.

Academic Reading and Math Guide: Placement is for at least one hour/one time per week, more frequently if possible.
Academic Guides provide assistance to Elementary level teachers. Guides provide one-to-one or small group attention to students in a classroom setting to enhance their understand of the concepts being covered in class.
