We are at the “beginning of the end” of the Spring 2014 semester here at Tutors for All. So, we’re taking a moment to reflect on how much tutor volunteers have contributed to our programs during this academic year.
During the Fall 2013 semester, volunteers served 946 hours. By choosing to volunteer, these tutors provided approximately $11,350 worth of work! We are genuinely thankful to our volunteers – their generous contribution of their time and skills make a huge impact towards bridging the achievement gap.
In particular, the Civil Engagement Program (CEP) at Northeastern provided an invaluable number of volunteers. CEP grants students scholarships for their community service engagement and is meant to “educate students for a life of fulfillment and accomplishment …and to meet global and societal needs.”
We’re looking forward to seeing how the graph for Spring 2014 looks in comparison to last semester. Will we have more hours? Will the school breakdowns be the same? Are there ways we can increase volunteerism (from colleges and beyond)? We shall see.
