Volunteers Needed!

The AVID Program teaches students the skills and behaviors necessary for academic success in high school, college and beyond.
  • AVID volunteers work with small groups of middle or high school students under the supervision of a teacher.
  • WE call our AVID volunteers "Tutors" because of the relational trust established between the "Tutors" and students.
  • WE provide training to use specific strategies that help develop students' critical thinking, literacy, and math skills.
  • Choose from multiple AVID sessions in eighteen school Monday through Friday
  • Community Volunteer Application and Background Check required,

Art Literacy

Art Literacy.

The program consists of volunteers who go into classrooms to give a visual presentation on an artist which is followed by a hands-on art project with the students. Typically, during the year, there are six different lessons presented for elementary and three lessons at the middle school level.

Volunteers are trained for every lesson they teach by a site-based coordinator at each school. The program’s curriculum at present is based on more than 100 artists, including European masters, renowned American artists, and some living, local artists.


If you are interested in volunteering or learning more about the Art Literacy program, please contact:
