VolunteersRegistration to become a tutor for the 2021-22 school year is currently closed. We will reopen registration for the 2022-23 school year in August.
All volunteers are required to have background checks and other documents.
What are my volunteer options?
Our biggest need for volunteers is for our V.I.P.S Tutoring Center. We are currently looking for motivated and dedicated individuals to help at our tutoring center. This is a perfect way to fulfill service-hour requirements or to become active in the community. Additional volunteer opportunities can be found at the bottom of this page.
Where is the Tutoring Center located?Due to Covid-19, the VIPS Tutoring Center will be held virtually this year.
What are the hours?
The Tutoring Center is open every Wednesday and Thursday from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m., except on inservice days and school closures. We ask that tutors commit to a minimum weekly, one-hour session for the school year. We are not open during any Penn State breaks or finals weeks.
What makes a good tutor?
We look for individuals who are knowledgeable, dependable, and enthusiastic. They must also have excellent communication and listening skills in addition to being patient, kind, encouraging, well prepared, and most of all, friendly. Ideally, tutors not only instruct our students, but foster a friendship with their tutee as well.
