Volunteers Wanted for After School Tutoring & Mentoring Program

October 3rd, 2011 by master

B.F. Day Elementary School is looking for volunteers to help tutor students in reading and math.

You don’t have to be a teacher or have a teaching degree. You just need to bring a “mentoring attitude” with you to help first-through-fifth graders learn.

The mentoring takes place Tuesdays and/or Thursdays from 3:00 to 4:15 p.m. from October 18, 2011 through April 5, 2012 at B.F. Day Elementary School. All materials will be provided.

Volunteers that speak a foreign language are in demand as well.

Orientation will be provided Oct.11 and Oct.13 between 3-4:00 pm. or by appointment. Training is available and service learning credit will be given.

To learn more about the program, contact Beth Tesh at 206-252-6042/ or check out

Volunteer tutors needed at B.F. Day

October 14th, 2009 by master

Community volunteers are wanted to help tutor 1st through 5th-grade students in reading and math at B.F. Day Elementary School.  The tutors are needed for the after-school mentoring program starting October 20 and going through March 25, 2010.  Hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:05-4:20pm and materials will be provided.  Service Learning Credit will also be given.  Families at the school speak 14 different languages so bi-lingual volunteers are a plus, but not necessary. 

There’s an orientation tomorrow, October 15, from 3:00-4:00pm for those who are interested.  Contact Beth Tesh at 206-252-6042 or email her at for more information.
