3.  Following the Orientation, one of our Program Managers will conduct a screening  interview to further explore your interests and to assist in making a placement if this opportunity seems to be a good fit.

4.  All volunteers are required to attend TWO training workshops during their first months of service

·       In the FIRST  workshop titled "Tutoring Essentials," participants will learn initial tutoring strategies that will prepare volunteers to work effectively with students. It will cover legal and ethical issues involved in working with children.

·       The SECOND required training is titled “Cultural Sensitivity”   This workshop  will focus on the diverse student population we serve.  The class will address challenges faced by first generation students, English Language Learners, and children living in poverty.  It will also combat stereotypes and discuss the strengths and resilience of many of the children we tutor. It will offer strategies and suggestions about working with diverse student populations.

5.  Submit a TB Clearance

All volunteers  will be required to provide TB clearance. If you have had a negative TB screening within the last four years, simply provide us with a copy. If you need a TB test, you can get one from your private physician or go to the Marin County Public Health Department.
