Schools of Hope Volunteer Tutor Application

                    

During the 2019-20 school year, United Way of Racine County will partner with Racine Unified School District and Burlington Area School District to place Schools of Hope volunteer tutors in seven local elementary schools. If you have questions about Schools of Hope, please refer to the Schools of Hope Frequently Asked Questions

Training is mandatory for all new and returning tutors. 

Tutors may attend trainings at either location, irrespective of their preffered school (i.e., a volunteer who wants to tutor at Wadewitz can attend tutor training in Burlington and vice versa).

                 Racine trainings will be held at United Way of Racine County, 2000 Domanik Dr, Racine, WI.

                 Burlington trainings will be held at Acelero, 209 Wainwright Ave, Burlington, WI.

Waller elementary hours are 8:10am - 3:20pm. ALL waller tutoring will take place 10:30-11:30. You must be available during that time to be a tutor at waller.

Volunteering for more than one session per week means a commitment of more than one hour per week. Due to student availability, it is challenging to schedule a tutor with more than two students on the same day of the week. Volunteers who would like to commit to more than one hour per week are encouraged to work with the same students on multiple days each week.
A tutor team is a partnership formed by two or three friends or colleagues to share the tutoring assignment. Members of a tutor team rotate who is responsible for tutoring each week. Volunteers who wish to be part of a tutor team are responsible for forming their own tutor team and ensuring that each member's preferences are in alignment on each individual's application. Teams of four or more tutors will not be accepted.
Please list the dates of any anticipated absences so that we can begin to schedule substitute tutors. Further instructions about what to do when you have an absence will be provided at tutor training.
Use this section to further describe/clarify your scheduling preferences.
Family members at Schools of Hope locations
Schools of Hope tutors will not be placed in the same classroom or grade level as a family member. For example, if you have a child in second grade at Wadewitz, and you would like to tutor at that school, you will be placed in a first- or third-grade classroom. If you have no family members who attend a Schools of Hope school, please enter "none."
Tutor training selection
Please select the training that works best with your schedule. Tutors can attend training in either location - it is not dependent on the preferred tutoring location.
If you did not tutor for the 2018-19 school year you are considered a "new" tutor for training purposes.
