More than 200 Children are Waiting for Tutors!

October 5, 2015

Accelerate Northfield needs you! There are currently more than 200 unfilled slots for tutors in our local schools. For as little as an hour a week, you can make a difference in the life of a student who is struggling and needs just a little boost to improve his or her academic standing.

Accelerate Northfield trains and supports tutors to work with students in the local schools. Tutors pick the age of the student(s) they want to work with, the day/time they are available, and even the school they would like to volunteer at. If tutors need to take off (whether for work or travel or snowbirding!), that’s okay – Accelerate Northfield will work around your schedule!

Accelerate Northfield is a collaborative of the Northfield Public Schools, Northfield Promise, Northfield Healthy Community Initiative, Carleton College, and St. Olaf College.
