Please give your time—become a tutor. Prior teaching experience is not needed. All that is required is your commitment to help tutor a minimum of 1.5 hours per week. With the completion of a 1.5 hour training session and 1-2 shadowing trials with a trained teacher, you will be ready to change a child’s life through the gift of literacy.

Relying on established Montessori methodologies that are simple and repeatable, volunteers are trained in a matter of hours and able to work with at-risk children to help them read at grade level. Through this unique participatory initiative people from all walks of life, from students to seniors, can work together to help empower Detroit’s children to reach their true potential.

If you are interested in getting involved, we would love to have you join our team. Please send an e-mail or call the contact number provided below to get started or to find out more information.

While the challenge of illiteracy is not unique to Detroit — let’s make Detroit the leader in adopting a solution that works. Together, we can give our children the tools they need and in turn help transform metro Detroit
