ENRICHMENT OPPORTUNITIES

Become a Volunteer Tutor
The Rotary Educational Assistance Program (REAP) is currently seeking volunteer tutors for our after-school tutoring program and invite you to help make a positive impact on our club members' academic future! We desire to connect with individuals interested in sharing their knowledge with youth through academic tutoring. This is an opportunity to help Rotary Boys & Girls Club members achieve their full academic potential and support our mission to inspire and enable all young people, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible caring citizens. We are committed to creating effective student-tutor partnerships and consider each individual student's academic needs, tutor availability and interests. REAP serves Rotary Boys & Girls Club members ages 10-18 and focuses on reading, writing, spelling and mathematics assistance. Students participate in scheduled daily homework sessions with academic tutors from 4-6 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Our second-floor academic center and computer labs are designed specifically for the success of REAP members and tutors. We are able to coordinate with your busy work/school schedule and look forward to speaking with you soon.
