Drop-In Tutoring Will Start On Monday, September 19! Huzzah!

August 31, 2005 | 826 Blog Post

Tutoring happens Monday through Thursday from 2:30-5:30. Tutoring involves: helping kids with homework or other projects, creating projects to do with kids, and generally hanging out. Tutoring only works, though, if we have tutors. To sign up, e-mail John at john@826michigan.org and ensure yourself a place on his “do not berate” list. John may introduce you to our most famous and huggable monimal, the giraffecat.

Do you feel like you don’t know what you’re doing? Don’t worry. We will offer a tutor training session at 826 on Wednesday, September 21 at 6:30. It probably won’t last long, it will be an opportunity to meet other volunteers, and you might actually learn something. Besides, it’s pretty much mandatory. We understand, though, that we need you more than you need us, so we promise that this meeting, as with all things 826, will be fun.

INTERNSHIPS! — Straight-up volunteering just not enough of a time commitment? Looking to move in? Apply for an internship. Interns do all sorts of things. All John (a former 826 Valencia intern) will say is that they do “everything. They do, like, everything.” Then he started saying something about blood in a giant monster. Now he’s saying something about how if people are into something, like art or writing, then we can steer that intern in that direction. Whatever. If you’ve got 15-20 hours a week to hang out here, apply.
