In this role, volunteers in Columbia Heights tutor their student every Tuesday and/or Wednesday nights 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM and in Hyattsville every Tuesday and/or Thursday from 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM.  In addition to meeting for weekly sessions, volunteers take their student on monthly mentoring activities.  Mentoring activities are arranged by the volunteer and student’s parent and can range from trips to museums and sports events to going to the movies or extra tutoring sessions.
