Brighten a tween’s day and give back to the community by volunteering as a tutor! From Rebecca Brand ’16 and Emma Davis ’17:
Keigwin Middle School – home to nearly every 6th grader in Middletown – is seeking Wesleyan students to help out at their after-school homework club for the remainder of the semester. Tutors will volunteer from 2:00 to 4:15 pm on Tuesdays or Thursdays. This is a particularly exciting time to get involved, as the Middletown Public Schools were just awarded a grant from the 21st Century Community Learning Centers Program to offer new after-school educational opportunities for students at Keigwin and Woodrow Wilson middle schools.
To volunteer this semester or to assist with this exciting new program as it develops, come to the interest meeting today at 6pm in Allbritton 318. For more information, contact rbrand[at]wesleyan[dot]edu and ecdavis[at]wesleyan[dot]edu. Federal work-study funds will be available for tutors in the future. The Office of Community Service will also be hiring one paid student coordinator for next semester; contact scapron[at]wesleyan[dot]edu for details.
Date: Tuesday, November 11 – TODAY!
Time: 6 PM
Place: Allbritton 318
There are so many groups at Wesleyan working with children that it can be hard to choose just one. Aspiring tutors sometimes join the first program they hear about rather than selecting an organization based on the target age group, time commitment, academic subject, and program structure. To help you pick the group that’s right for you, the Office of Community Service is hosting an information session where representatives from several tutoring programs on campus will talk about their work and answer your questions.
Whether you’re providing homework help and dance classes at Green Street or doing long division at Macdonough School, tutoring and mentoring are fun and effective ways to engage with the community. If you receive Federal Work-Study, you can get paid for volunteering with an OCS literacy program.

The Wesleyan program of LGR partners with rising high school seniors from Middletown, Platt, and Maloney High Schools on the SAT, college applications, and financial aid information.

Sixth grade is rarely the best year in a person’s life, and most would agree that it would have gone a bit smoother with the help of older, nicer, cooler friends. Now is your opportunity to be that friend to some of the students at the Keigwin Middle School, home to nearly every sixth-grader in Middletown. Keigwin’s after-school program is looking for volunteers from Wesleyan to provide homework help, discuss their own educational experiences, and even teach enrichment mini-courses on Tuesdays and/or Thursdays from 2:35 to 4:45 pm. The program is also providing small stipends for two students to serve as coordinators for this semester and next year.
There will be an info meeting for volunteers and coordinators on Monday, March 24. If you’d like to be considered for a coordinator position, send a brief paragraph on your interest in the position and experience with tutoring to Rob Arpin at arpinr[at]mpsct[dot]org and Rosy Capron ’14 at scapron[at]wesleyan[dot]edu by noon on Monday.
Date: Monday, March 24
Time: 7:30 PM – 8:15 PM
