High School Students

High school students that first came to us as clients are able to give back by becoming academic coaches themselves. Qualified juniors and seniors can volunteer to work one-on-one with younger kids, or help cover the “homework café”, receiving one hour of community service credit per hour for each child in the group.

There is no fee for coaching done by high school students.
