The Children of Hope Academy is looking for volunteer tutors for our students with disabilities. Volunteers are needed for the duration of the school year (Aug 18- May 21) with holidays and breaks in accordance with the Washington County School District Calendar.
Volunteer shifts are once a week from 9:30-11:30 am or 1:00-3:00 pm. (One hour shifts also could be accommodated.) Female students meet in the morning and male students in the afternoon. There are also a few volunteers needed from 3:00 to 4:30 pm for students who work during regular school hours. Volunteers would serve at the school located at 1008 E 200 S next to Dixie State University.
As a tutor you would work one-on-one with a student to guide them through their prescribed exercises and activities each specifically designed to help them improve their cognitive, social and physical abilities. All material is provided and no experience is necessary. Volunteers will receive orientation and assistance would be available at all times if questions arise.
The Children of Hope Academy provides a remarkable service for our community and is completely funded by private donations. This non-profit school founded by Alton and Diana Wade is the only one of its kind in the world. It provides on-going education for students who have aged-out of public school but still have great capacity to expand and improve. The environment at the school is positive, loving, and rewarding beyond measure.
If you would like to join our team of volunteers or would like more information, please call Diana Wade, Volunteer Coordinator. We need volunteers!
