The Yellowjacket Tutor Program
Presented by the Office for Community Involvement and the College of Education
The Yellowjacket Tutor program is an exciting opportunity for College of Education students to gain real-world teaching experience while providing a valuable service to the city of Billings. As a mentor-tutor, you will volunteer for one to two hours a week at the location of your choice, providing academic and personal guidance to students in need.
In other words, you get to give back to your community while building your resume and your relationship with School District 2.
In a difficult hiring economy, one of the best ways to improve your future job prospects is to build a strong resume before graduation. Volunteering in our program will not only strengthen you as an educator, it will also help you stand out as an experienced and civically-minded individual.
This program is open to all MSUB students, but volunteer placements are limited and priority will be given to Education undergraduate and masters students.
The Yellowjacket Tutor program currently serves the following schools:
- Senior High School (Monday-Friday, 3:00-4:00 PM and Wednesdays, 8:00-9:00 AM)
- Lewis and Clark and Will James Middle Schools (Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3:00-5:00 PM)
- Garfield Community Resource Center (Tuesdays and Thursday, 3:00-4:00 PM)
If you would like to be a Yellowjacket Tutor, please start by reading our Volunteer Description and Expectations, which you can find here.
