Tutors/Mentors for at-risk kids 1st - 4th grades

TBD (downtown San Jose somewhere)

Thank you for your interest in assisting Muindi Foundation in our efforts to serve children and families that are homeless, house-less, working poor and under-served in our community.

We have a mentor/tutoring program the 4th Saturday of every month for at risk and homeless youth. Currently, we need tutors to work with our kids 1st - 4th grades.

Our students really need continuity and a patience nurturing and a person to help them with their studies and to build confidence and self-esteem.

All tutors must:
1. be fully vaccinated and have no COVID-19 symptoms.
2. complete a volunteer application packet. Copy link:

3. Attend a 30-minute training held via zoom.
4. complete a background check and finger printing since you will be working with children.
5. limited close contact with unvaccinated people due to the exposure it may cause to our children in the program.
6. Always wear a mask.
7. be 18 years of age.
8. wear close-toed, non-skid shoes such as sneakers.

NOTE: Punctuality is a must. Volunteers arriving late even with confirmation may be turned away.
