Every year more than 150 committed volunteers leverage their time and talents to support our students and enhance the mission of the Center. The majority of our volunteers make at least a semester-long commitment to work directly with our Pioneer Scholars or Scholars to College students. In addition, there are one-time opportunities to assist with special events or special projects. If you are interested in volunteering, please read more about our three volunteer opportunities and complete the appropriate online volunteer application.

Scholars to College Subject Area Tutor

Scholars to College Subject Area Tutors work with our high school students in a one-on-one setting in a variety of subjects, with the greatest need in math and the sciences. Volunteers in this role have expertise in a subject area relevant to high school coursework and experience tutoring or teaching. The time commitment is generally one hour per week during after-school or early evening hours, depending on student schedules. Once matched, tutors and students are asked to commit to these one-hour, weekly sessions for the duration of the student’s semester.

Special Event and Project Volunteer

Special Event Volunteers assist during program, community, and/or fundraising events throughout the year. These are generally one-time commitments. Special Project Volunteers assist in areas that meet their skills and interests, such as photography, video editing, translation, and administrative support. Individuals who complete the Special Event and Project application will be added to our volunteer e-mail list and informed as opportunities arise.
