Ways to help


It’s easy to make a big difference in a child’s life. You spend about two hours a week being friends with a child who is growing up in a low income family and needs someone to be a role model. Our students need someone like you to believe in their potential. Mentors must live or work in Pomona Valley, be 18 years or age or older, available weekly for a year, and be a college student or graduate.

To be a Tutor you just have to spend about 1 ½ – 2 hours a week helping your student with their homework and academic skills. You’ll most likely meet at school or a library, at a time that is convenient for both of you. Whether you’re a high school student, college student, working adult, or senior, being a tutor is an ideal way to help a child achieve their dreams. Tutors must live or work in Pomona Valley, be 16 years of age or older, and available weekly for a semester.
