Friday , August 30 , 2019

The PVSchools Volunteer In Paradise (VIP) program is recruiting tutors to provide one-on-one and small group instruction to students with the goal of increasing their achievement. Attend the next VIP orientation to find out whether the award-winning VIP program is the right opportunity for you. Register to attend the next orientation on Friday, September 13 from 9-11 a.m. at the PVSchools Community Resource Center (get directions).

As a VIP, you’ll be positively impacted by

  1. knowing you are giving a child hope.
  2. having a sense of purpose.
  3. helping a teacher be more effective.
  4. being part of a nurturing community.
  5. becoming an active supporter of public education in Arizona.

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, Larkspur, Mercury Mine Elementary School, North Ranch Elementary School, and Whispering Wind Academy.
