Volunteer Tutors Needed!

Interested in helping a child improve their academic and learning skills? Could you help twice a week between 3:00 and 5:00 pm? The Hispanic Outreach Services Tutoring Program of Catholic Charities of Southeast Michigan (CCSEM) needs volunteers to work with children from Hispanic families in the first through fifth grades at four elementary schools in Pontiac. You don’t need a background in Spanish to help! The students speak English and need help with their homework and other academic activities to improve their performance in multiple subject areas. This tutoring help is a good fit for high school and college students as well as retirees or others who have afternoons free. Volunteer tutors team up with onsite CCSEM staff for support and coordination. To learn more, call Viviana Cornejo at 248-338-4250 ext. 3719 or email: cornejov@ccsem.org

Youth Mentors Needed!

Volunteer mentors for these Pontiac-area children should be at least 21 years of age and have their own transportation. No need to speak Spanish. CCSEM will provide training and match you with child who would benefit from your time and attention. Go for a walk, toss a ball around, go sledding, read a book, help with homework - all it takes is the ability to be with the child on a regular basis.
