The Boselli Foundation has adopted Dinsmore Elementary for the 2019-2010 school year. The Title 1 school serves approximately 530 students and is located on the Northside. Our desire is to partner with this school by providing additional academic support to students in need. A wonderful way to enhance the learning that occurs in the classroom is to provide tutoring, both during the school day and through an after-school program.
Currently, we are recruiting volunteers to serve once a week for 45-60 minutes, providing tutoring in reading, for students in grades K-2. Hours for tutoring are 9-11 am, 1-2 pm, and 4-5 pm. The request is for volunteers to commit to a minimum of 12 weeks, beginning after Labor Day. Teachers will provide volunteers with guidance on what activities to complete during each session and no prep work is required.
If you would like to participate as a tutor, the first step is to complete a background check using this link.
