All our volunteers are equally essential to the success of our programs. There are four great ways to make a difference that meet a wide variety of our volunteers' schedules and interests.
Tutors - Tutors who serve with St. Mark programs are flexible in
responding to the needs of our program staff and students during daily program
activities. Tutors don't need to be an expert in academics! Our Tutors coach
kids as they finish their homework, assist our teachers and participate in
enrichment activities, and play educational games with kids. This position is
ideal for college and high school students 16 and older and community members
with busy schedules. Contact Amanda Avenarius, Associate Director today and
start leading our students toward academic success!
Mentors - Mentors are
individuals who are committed to spending time and developing a relationship
one-on-one with the same student over an extended period of time. Mentors meet
with their assigned mentee a minimum of 1 hour per week (4 hours per month)
during our regular program hours at the school sites. Individuals who wish to
make a significant impact on one child's life and can commit to meeting with
their mentee once a week for at least the duration of the school year are
strongly encouraged to contact Amanda Avenarius, Associate Director to learn
more about this exciting opportunity.
Special Activity Volunteers - Special Activity Volunteers bring a special activity or lesson to our students to enrich the regular program curriculum. For example, students enrolled in a Shakespeare class at Loras College brought 3 classic plays to life for our students. This type of service is ideal for groups, clubs, or businesses that are passionate about their field of interest and are ready to spend some time sharing it with our children. Contact Amanda Avenarius, Associate Director to find out how you or your group can expand our students horizons!
