2019-2020 Volunteer Tutor Application


Steppingstone S.M.A.S.H.

We are no longer accepting volunteer applications for the 2018-2019 school year. Please check back in September!

Offered every Saturday throughout the academic year, SMASH (Saturday Mentoring and Study Hall) 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.
