Volunteers come to DeLaSalle to change the lives of our students—only to find that along the way our students have changed their lives too. You can make an impact on DeLaSalle students by working directly with students and teachers through tutoring and mentoring, you can help with special fundraising events, or provide support for any of our special programs and activities
Student and Classroom Tutors
DeLaSalle prides itself on the individual attention teachers give our students. Though many of our students are right where they should be academically, many of them are several grade levels behind in math, reading or science and can greatly benefit from one – on – one tutoring.
Tutors must be encouraging, supportive, patient, flexible and tolerant of student differences. The tutor must be able to commit at least one hour a week during the school day for at least a full semester. Tutors will need to pass a background screening and attend an orientation in the fall or spring.
Career and College Exploration
DeLaSalle is committed to preparing our students for the next step after graduation. Some of our graduates head to college while some join the workforce. Whichever direction they choose to go in, DeLaSalle will help them explore their options.
We’ve found that a very effective method to aid in this exploration is to have volunteers talk about their own college and career choices and share their expertise. Volunteers are needed to come to school to speak or if applicable, demonstrate, on topics ranging from college preparedness to demonstrations of their specific career.
