Youth Development Volunteers

There are many opportunities to volunteer with our Youth Department.

Become a Tutor
Help ensure that children receive adequate educational and social support by becoming a youth tutor.

Participants will work with a child weekly in through a curriculum-based tutoring program, homework help, and enrichment activities. At the end of the school year, you will learn almost as much as your student!

All tutors are asked to commit two hours, once a week to CFLS. Tutoring takes place from October to May every year.

For more information send an email to volunteer@cflsdc.org or call (202) 347-0511 ext. 415.

After School Volunteers
Do you have a hidden talent or another skill you would like to share with children in CFLS' housing programs? Throughout the school year, students participate in enrichment activities with volunteers who teach anything from the art of being a clown to the history of hip hop to the legacy of leaders who preach peace. Lend your Friday afternoon to open up a child's eyes.

If you are interested in sharing your skills with our children, please call 202-347-0511, extension 311 or email volunteer@cflsdc.org.
