Thursday , September 26 , 2019
Are you interested in volunteering and tutoring students, but not sure where to start? Bring a friend or a neighbor with you to the next Volunteer In Paradise (VIP) orientation on Tuesday, October 1st from 9-11 a.m. at the PVSchools Community Resource Center (get directions). Don't forget to register to attend the event.
VIP tutors provide one-on-one and small group instruction to students with the goal of increasing their achievement. Attend the next VIP orientation with a friend to find out whether the award-winning VIP program is the right opportunity for you.
“Volunteer In Paradise provides a meaningful way to serve children who attend public schools. By providing one-on-one small group instruction to students who may not otherwise receive this type of attention, the VIP gets great satisfaction knowing they could be changing a child’s life,” said Marisha Geraghty, volunteer specialist - Human Resources.
Established in 2013, VIPs tutor students who need extra academic support, and in turn, help increase student academic achievement. The VIP program matches dedicated qualified volunteer tutors with students at participating schools. Volunteer tutors work with students in either a one-on-one setting or in small groups with the goal of increasing student achievement for students in kindergarten through sixth-grade. Opportunities may be available at one or more of the following elementary schools: Boulder Creek, Campo Bello Elementary School, Desert Cove Elementary School, Desert Shadows Elementary School, Echo Mountain Intermediate School, Echo Mountain Primary School, Hidden Hills Elementary School, Indian Bend Elementary School, Larkspur Elementary School, Mercury Mine Elementary School, North Ranch Elementary School, and Whispering Wind Academy.
