Volunteer Opp: More Teen Tutors Needed

An Arlington-based affordable housing organization urgently needs more tutors for its educational programs this fall.

As we said in a post last month, AHC Inc. (formerly Arlington Housing Corporation) has been running its teen tutoring program for more than 15 years. Tutors act as a teacher, mentor and role model for ask-risk middle school and high school students who live in AHC communities. They work one-on-one with the teens, devoting at least an hour and a half per week.

But AHC hasn’t been able to find the 60 tutors needed for its growing program.

“We’re getting worried,” said AHC Communications Manager Celia Slater. “Although school – and homework – have already started, we still need about 20 more tutors for teens.”

The 90-minute tutoring sessions take place on weeknights at six locations in Arlington, two of which are Metro accessible.

For more information on becoming a tutor, contact Jennifer Cavaliere at cavaliere [at] ahcinc.org or 703-486-0626.

    I just started as a tutor with this program 2 weeks ago. I am really having fun! These kids are so smart. I’m very impressed. For the Gates of Ballston, the tutors are there Tuesdays from 6 to about 7:30. You’re home in time for dinner and plenty of your evening left. This is a great volunteer op!

    I’m also a new tutor with this program. It’s well run, the other volunteers are nice, and the kids are great.

    There are locations that are Metro-accessible.

    so do they want teenage tutors or adult-age tutors…..if the later shouldn’t the request read” more tutors for teens”…

    • Katie

      Yes, adults.

  • Michele D

    I believe they want adult-age tutors. But contact them to be sure.

  • AHC, Inc is looking for adults to tutor teens, but there are also opportunities in Arlington for teens to be tutors. You can find a current list here: http://bit.ly/9WfOAm
