To Volunteer:

Volunteers are required to volunteer a minimum of once a week for 10 weeks. We are also recruiting volunteers to tutor students in math and reading at the After-School Learning Centers
one day a week for two hours after school. We ask volunteers to commit to this opportunity once a week
or a minimum of 10 weeks. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old. Because tutoring volunteers work directly with minor children, a current Ohio BCI/FBI background check is required. Please contact Nikki Fogg at 614-358-2627 or by email at
