Happy National Volunteer Month!
April 5, 2018
April is National Volunteer Month and we want to take a moment to extend our deepest gratitude for each and every one of our amazing volunteers. Across 17 partner schools, over 980 volunteers are dedicating their time every week to provide Charlotte students with the strong foundation in math and the confidence they need for long-term success. Our volunteers are on the forefront delivering the one-on-one instruction students need while also serving as mentors and advocates for our students and schools. We wanted to share some words of gratitude from our school partners who are appreciative of the support our volunteers are providing for their students.
“Not only are the students learning and getting caught up, but they are learning the new material much quicker and easier. They all also LOVE the time they get to spend with their tutors.” – 3rd Grade Teacher at Sterling Elementary
“I thank all the volunteers for showing up and supporting students, creating bonds and being a positive adult in their lives. The work that is done helps students start from the point of their initial academic gap and builds forward.” – 3rd Grade Teacher at Whitewater Academy
“I can’t thank you enough for all that you do. You are needed on a daily basis. Thank you for showing my students you care about their future!” – 2nd Grade Teacher at Nathaniel Alexander Elementary
“I sincerely appreciate the time and effort put forth by my kids’ tutors. They always greet them with a smile of encouragement they all need. My scholars know their tutors care about them and that means the world to me as their teacher.” – 1st Grade Teacher at Shamrock Gardens Elementary
We also want to thank the many organizations – employers, civic groups, faith groups – who spread the word and share their employees, members, and teams with Heart Tutoring at CMS elementary schools. Volunteer partners are listed here.
