Literacy & Math Tutoring for Adults | Weekly Volunteer Opportunity

Imagine the pride an adult student feels when they receive their degree. To many, finishing a degree later in life than most is a testimony to the hard work and resilience that empowered them through the challenges they faced along their journey. Now, imagine being a part of that journey.

As a Hands on Charlotte volunteer, you have the opportunity to experience a portion of that pride when you help tutor a non-traditional student in basic literacy and math.

When you participate in Hands on Charlotte’s adult student tutoring sessions, you are doing so much more than working together with students to complete the math problems in their workbooks. You will get the chance to provide your fellow Charlotte citizens with the help and encouragement that will fuel them toward their graduation. You will make friendships, see real learning progress and even brush up on your simple math skills.

The sessions are only an hour and a half on Tuesday and Thursday nights- and you don’t have to commit to any sort of schedule. Just sign up for the days you’re available and don’t forget to bring your teamwork mentality! The tutoring takes place at Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC), where parking is free and only a block from the tutoring classroom.

Study Buddies | Weekly Volunteer Opportunity

For some Charlotte kids, homework is a daunting challenge, each and every night. Many children need help but don’t have any guidance at home. In some families, parents work late hours or simply don’t know how to help. Often, students in Charlotte schools need a buddy to help encourage and guide them through their homework so they can keep up with their school work and excel in and out of the classroom.

This undeniable need for afterschool tutoring for many Charlotte students inspired a program to empower and give kids the help they need.

Study Buddies, a Hands on Charlotte program is an informal, rewarding volunteer opportunity that invests in the education of local children. Being a Study Buddy is a priceless experience. Not only will you gain a sense of pride in watching a student make progress and reach their goals, but you will create special relationships with the students. In a lot of cases, the kids are craving companionship with someone who is interested in being their “buddy”. That’s where you come in.

With the dedication of only an hour and a half of your time on a Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday night at any of the three different convenient Study Buddies locations, you have the chance to make a fundamental difference in the life of a young student. Not only is it rewarding, but it’s also easy. Volunteers simply pair up with students and help them with various homework assignments. From reviewing spelling words or reading books, to learning multiplication tables, your job is to guide the student in the right direction, while adding in the help they may need throughout the hour and a half tutoring session.

What’s that? You’re not willing to pass up such an impactful and rewarding opportunity?

Good idea.
