Thank you for your interest in tutoring middle and high school age students, grades 6-12. Volunteers are stakeholders and decision makers in our community. We need your life and work experience, creativity, education, talent, inspiration, and time. Our volunteers tutor from the comfort of your home or camper (if you are retired) computer. In an urgent response to the COVID-19 crisis, only online tutoring is offered for the current 2020-2021 academic year. Of the 13,000 students in Santa Fe, 80% are Hispanic or Latino. Spanish speaking tutors are in high demand in the greater Santa Fe region and all of New Mexico.

On every online tutoring session, there is one adult to tutor, and a 2nd adult to monitor and record the sessions audio and video. We provide our volunteers with an orientation, training, and support as needed.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you would like a further explanation about our volunteer program. We also have other volunteer positions needed to be filled that may interest you if tutoring is not your first preference.

Volunteer Onboarding Process:
