Tutors at Reach – Volunteer Opportunity

Tutors at Reach is a California non-profit organization founded in Los Angeles, California. Our mission is to bring free tutoring to young students facing financial hardship who could not otherwise afford it. We operate by having volunteers donate their time to tutor children for the betterment of the less fortunate and the overall community.

Tutoring services will be available to all students at our partner schools, which range from elementary to high school. We have finalized our partnership with 32nd Street School, which is located directly across the street from University Park Campus (on the corner of Jefferson and Hoover). This school was carefully selected due to its convenient location and the needs of its students. We are launching this program at several universities across California including UCLA, UC Berkeley and UC San Diego.

Our purpose operates by giving volunteers the opportunity to contribute back to their community in a practical way. Tutoring young people who would otherwise not have access to this type of academic support provides a wealth of short term and long term benefits. They develop effective study methods and improved comprehension of a challenging subject, and in the process, gain confidence. It will also allow a more seamless collaboration between university students and their community.

We require our volunteers to have the following requirements: (1) 3.0 and above cumulative GPA (during college or graduation); and (2) successfully pass the subject to be tutored with a solid ‘A’. It is required that each volunteer completes just one hour a week to remain an active member of the nonprofit organization. Additionally, Tutors at Reach is certified by the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation to award our volunteers with The President’s Volunteer Service Award. This award recognizes eligible volunteers who have completed the required number of hours.

Volunteers are provided the opportunity indicate which subject they hold both skill and interest in tutoring. If this is opportunity is something you are interested please contact Arash Babadjouni at asbabadj@usc.edu to obtain a brief application.
