Volunteering Opportunities with the
Georgetown University Center for Social Justice
After School Kids Program (ASK)
The Georgetown University Center for Social Justice and is seeking volunteers for the After School Kids (ASK) Program which serves teens in the DC metropolitan area, who are looking to make positive strides in their lives and to be catalysts for change in their community. The youth participating in the ASK Program are adversely impacted by the school-to-prison pipeline, and may be experiencing multiple obstacles to obtaining their high school diploma, careers, and postsecondary education. It is not uncommon for these youth to experience chronic trauma exposure, involvement in the court system, and to be over-aged and under-credited. Despite their daily obstacles, they envision a brighter future through education, social action, and wellness. ASK provides programming and support to realize their vision.
The ASK Program seeks tutors who can introduce the youth to interesting ways of learning that will help them develop learning and analytical skills, engage them in activities that make learning enjoyable, help them with their homework, and offer guidance on future career options and college opportunities.
Tutoring/mentoring takes place on campus. The students are brought to campus and the program is scheduled from 5:30pm to 8:00pm, Monday-Thursday and Saturday from 10:30 am – 2:30 pm.
Tutors can volunteer as many times as their schedule permits.
Help is especially needed with Algebra, and precalculus. Sign up to tutor/mentor.
