Tutors can make an Impact
Any dependable volunteer can tutor. It is not necessary to have formal teaching experience. To be a successful tutor you must be fond of children, have patience, and understanding.
Logging Volunteer HoursIt's so important for our volunteers to log their hours! Logging and tracking volunteer hours allows for a truer picture of what programs actually cost. Business partners and donors want to know the real value of our programs, and underestimating the impact of volunteers undervalues the program. Thorough volunteer tracking systems also allow us to gain a better understanding of how much volunteers COST and CONTRIBUTE to the organization. This allows us to define clear current needs and requirements. Lastly, the community, potential families choosing our schools, and other volunteers take note of the strength of the volunteer programs (number of hours) as an indicator of credibility and belief in the school. Please help us by logging your hours!For questions regarding your Username and Password, volunteer status or entering hours, please contact the Family & Community Liaison at the school where you volunteer.Thank You Mentors!Thank you to the more than 2,500 mentors providing caring support to over 3,500 students.Pinellas County SchoolsDistrict Mentor Coordinator
