CASP is a nonprofit that relies on donations and volunteers to assist in the operation of its programs. We invite you to check out our volunteer opportunities below and click on the “donate button” if you’d like to make a donation to the CASP Tutoring Program.
CASP recently pivoted its services to focus on, and expand, its free tutoring program. CASP provides literacy tutoring to limited income families whose children are reading below grade level. Tutoring takes place at the CASP administrative offices as well as various partner locations. While this singular focus on tutoring is new, our program is in its fifth decade of providing services to our community.
CASP tutoring positions are perfect for education majors, those who enjoy working with children, retired adults, high school students, Work Study award recipients, or anyone who wants an opportunity to give back to the community. Volunteer tutors are asked to commit to tutoring at least one hour twice each week between the hours of 3:00 pm and 6:00 p.m. for one semester. CASP provides training as well as the curriculum, resources, and teaching tools needed by tutors during their tutoring sessions. Tutors are matched with at-risk youth and serve as positive mentors while assisting students in strengthening their literacy skills. By guiding students through the curriculum, reading aloud, word work, and playing games, tutors provide positive guidance that teaches students how to problem solve, improve their study skills, and become successful readers.
