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 the Director of Programs 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 the St. Mark Director of Programs 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 the St. Mark Director of Programs to find out how you or your group can expand our students horizons!

New year, school year!
September 1, 2014
Today marked the first day of before and after school programs for families enrolled at St. Mark Youth Enrichment. These programs are what set St. Mark apart from any other program. These are offered before and after school at five schools in Dubuque: Audubon, Fulton, Lincoln, Marshall and Prescott. We focus on literacy and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engeneering, Art and Math) to give students a fun way to learn. The majority of the students we serve are from low income households and participation in these programs give them the opportunity to succeed!
