ONE TO ONE TUTORING
Volunteers are needed for the spring semester of 1 to 1 Tutoring at Lee High School. This program takes place every Tuesday in the LHS library and is a valuable resource for students. Tutors are needed for all subjects. You do not have to be an expert...some basic knowledge in a subject and a willingness to work with teens is all that is required. Additionally, volunteers are needed to provide food and water each week. This is a great opportunity for small groups and classes to serve together. Contact Valerie Tinker at vatinker@gmail.com for more information.
