Support a Student
Children who have not been able to master academic skills at the same rate as their classmates experience substantial decreases in their self-esteem and motivation to learn.[i]
By working one-on-one with a student, you can help them improve their academic achievement, confidence, and motivation. No experience is required to become a mentor or a tutor. Dallas ISD provides the training, materials, and support you need to impact student outcomes.We need volunteers who can spend one hour a week with students as elementary literacy tutors or middle school mentors.
