After-School Tutors Needed!

In Colorado, nearly a quarter of students don't graduate on time, and in most of the schools in which CYC works, that number is even larger. By volunteering your time, you are an essential part of achieving our mission of solving the dropout crisis in Colorado.

Volunteers are needed to provide one-on-one or small group tutoring to students who are struggling in their classes and could use additional support with the academic material or specific content or assignments. Volunteer opportunities are currently available at the following schools:
