Community members interested in a job or volunteer opportunity are encouraged to become paid tutors and mentors to local, low-income youth from third through ninth grades.
The Multicultural Institute is recruiting for about seven positions available, each paid $15 per hour for a minimum commitment of four hours weekly. The organization prefers candidates with tutoring experience but is open to hiring anyone wanting to gain experience.
The tutoring program began Sept. 17 and runs through May 9, 2019. Program hours are 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., Mondays through Thursdays, at 3600 Macdonald Ave. in Richmond.
The Multicultural Institute has been working in Richmond since 2010 and have been in Alameda County for 28 years. Its tutoring program, Mentoring for Academic Success, aims to provide academic support to low income students, helping to strengthen their reading and math skills and providing STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) learning to groups of four students.
