How to get involved

The SMASH Program

Please note that SMASH runs from September to May.

Offered every Saturday throughout the academic year, SMASH is a two-hour study hall where Scholars can work independently, collaborate with other students, and receive one-on-one tutoring. Volunteers support Scholars by serving as tutors and mentors, and these meaningful relationships help students gain confidence, build their academic skills, and stay on track for college. If you’d like to get involved, please fill out our volunteers form. For more information, please contact us at volunteers@tsf.org or follow the link below.
