Tutors provide academic support based upon their individual strengths and assist students with the development of study skills. It is essential that tutors are proficient in at least one subject area. Tutors also form relationships with students by spending time at the Cor building. Example responsibilities for tutors include helping students with assignments, test review, and paper writing/editing in the subject areas of mathematics, science, english, history, and foreign languages. Tutors typically spend at least one night per week at the Cor building during the evenings (approximately 7:30-9:30 PM) working with students during a semester.
Academic coaches build one-on-one relationships with students by working with them in three big areas: tutoring, building academic skills, and mentorship. Coaches help students become academically proactive while forming a positive, growing relationship with an adult. Example responsibilities of coaches include subject-area tutoring, discussing upcoming assignments and tests, building organizational and study skills, and assisting students in academic planning, all while working to build a caring and trusting relationship with the student. Academic coaches typically spend 3-5 hours per week at the Cor building during the evenings working with a student throughout the school year.

Mentors build relationships with students with more focus on character and personal development rather than academic. Mentors spend time with students learning about their lives and getting to know students. This is an excellent opportunity if you would love to spend time with teenagers, but are not as passionate about monitoring their academics. Example responsibilities for mentors include going to athletic events, hanging out at the building and playing video games, grabbing a meal with students, etc. Because Cor primarily serves male student athletes, we ask that all mentors are also males. The time commitment varies as mentors build relationships with students, but some type of student contact and/or interaction each week is preferred during the school year.
Middle school volunteers help with a wide variety of things, but the main focus is building relationships with students. Because middle school academics are not as rigorous, specific subject-area tutoring is not often needed, but, rather, someone that is willing to work with student on building both proactive academic skills and personal development. Middle school volunteers spend time monitoring student work time, encouraging academic perseverance, and hanging out with students. While not a requirement, it is extremely helpful if a middle school volunteer could drive several students home at the end of the evening. Middle school volunteers typically spend at least one afternoon/night per week during the evenings working with students during a semester.

Drivers provide transportation home for student athletes at the end of the evening from the building to their homes. Drivers also often form relationships with students during their time together in the car. This is a great opportunity for anyone that has some evening flexibility. Please note that your own vehicle and insurance is needed. Because Cor primarily serves male student athletes, male drivers or female drivers with another passenger are preferred. Drivers are needed from approximately 9:30-10:30 PM one night per week during the semester.
Volunteering as a meal provider means you provide dinner for students at the building on a weekday night (Monday-Thursday) once a month. Meals are needed for approximately 60 hungry student athletes, so this could also be a great opportunity for a group service.
50 or more people pass in and out of the Cor building on a daily basis, so a lot of general upkeep is needed. Basic cleaning (vacuuming, sweeping, trash maintenance, etc.) and organizing during the school day when students are not at the Cor building is extremely helpful. This is an excellent way to help serve Cor if you have some flexibility during the day!
Cor is always looking for people with a wide variety of skills and talents to share those! Any special skill you may have that could be helpful to maintaining a space and running a business is a significant help to Cor. Examples may include, but are definitely not limited to, handyman skills, vehicle service/maintenance, landscaping, IT skills, grant-writing, marketing or advertising, graphic design, fundraising, accountancy, photography/videography, etc!
