LYI & YESS Virtual Academic program runs Mondays through Thursdays with an optional "Open Study Hall" on Fridays from 4-5pm that will take place on Zoom. The programs begins on October 6th and ends on May 20th with Open Study Hall officially starting on October 16th. LYI & YESS students will be 6th through 12th graders.
We are currently looking for homework volunteers/tutors that will be available to help on Fridays. Our "Open Study Hall" is a pilot optional programming day this year, therefore, we will not have a total number of students that will attend each Friday. LYI & YESS students are required to sign up for open study hall by each Wednesday in order to know how many volunteers will be needed. It is important for volunteers to understand that they will not always be required on Fridays but they will be "on-call" for Fridays until Wednesday. If students sign up for tutoring help on Fridays, all volunteers will be contacted in order to see who can volunteer that week (if volunteers don't confirm their participation by the end of Thursday they will not participate in that week's study hall). If volunteer is a current high school student, they will only be able to work with the middle school program, if over 18 years old and no longer in high school, volunteers will be assigned to work with the high school program students. If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out the form below and you will be contacted by a program facilitator.
All volunteers will have to attend a Mandatory Volunteer Training
October 9th 3:30-4:30pm via Zoom (Link will be provided the week prior to training)
The following Fridays there will be no study hall:
November 27th (Thanksgiving Holiday)
December 18th - January 8th (H.S Finals week/Winter Break)
March 19th - April 2nd (Spring Break)
May 20th (End of Programming)
