Earn Community Service Hours as a Tutor

GIVE is a nonprofit who can pair you with an elementary or middle school child. You will help that child with their academic work and act as a mentor to them. This is a fun way to give back to the community and earn community service hours. We meet Saturdays from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the children's room.  For more information, email directors@giveyouth.org.
