There are several ways to serve as a CYP volunteer:

  • Homework helper

  • Drive students home in the evenings

  • Give a presentation to students


Homework helpers (tutor) assist students with homework and studying. Tutoring sessions are completed 1-1. Homework is completed between 3-5pm, M-Th.

Evening drivers transport children to their homes at the end of the day. Most students live within 5 miles of CYP. Rides home are between 5:30-6:00pm, M-F.

Presenters offer special interest programming to elementary and/or middle school groups. We'd love to hear your ideas for a unique presentation!
