Got Time and Book Smarts?

The Pico Branch Library is calling all book worms, science geeks, high school honor roll-ees, or anyone with time and a passion for learning to share their knowledge with local youth. The City of Santa Monica is seeking a new cadre of volunteers – from teens to seniors – to help close the ever-widening achievement gap through the power of high quality homework assistance and tutoring.

The tutoring is for children and youth in grades 1 through 8. Here are the requirements to become a tutor:

  • High school-age or older.
  • Available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Saturdays this fall.
  • Can get to the Pico Branch Library in Virginia Avenue Park.
  • Adult volunteers will be required to do a background check and fingerprinting.
  • Spanish and Ethiopian speakers are strongly desired.
