Position Description

Do you have a passion for education, or a knowledge set you would like to share? Would you like a chance to help youth learn and grow?

The Boys & Girls Club of London is looking for volunteer tutors to help in our education program, My Action Plan to Education (M.A.P.). Working in tandem with BGCL staff, tutors work with individual or small groups of children and youth in academic fields that fit the tutors knowledge base and interest.

In our Junior M.A.P. program, tutors work with children from grades 4-8, with a focus on Math, English, or French. The Junior M.A.P. program runs Mondays-Thursdays, from 4:00-6:00.

In our Senior M.A.P. program, tutors work with youth from grades 9-12, in multiple disciplines. Senior M.A.P. tutors also serve as mentors to the youth, helping develop important skills such as time management and organization. Senior M.A.P. runs Mondays-Thursdays, from 4:00-8:00.

To volunteer, you must submit a Volunteer Application (obtained from our website or completed online) and include 3 references on the application. References cannot be family members or equivalent.

You will be asked to obtain a Police Vulnerable Sector Check (PVSC). A letter will be provided to obtain the PVSC after the references have been contacted by our staff. The cost of the PVSC will be reimbursed after a probationary period.
