**** Make sure to block these dates on your calendar when you sign up. Your commitment to this volunteer opportunity is highly appreciated.
We are happy to meet you! We hope you can come join us and make a difference in the lives of street children!
WHO: We are tutoring scholars of He Cares Foundation. They are trying to maintain a certain grade average to remain in the program. They live in informal settler communities.
WHAT: We will teach basic English and Math. We will have materials that we can use to practice their skills (books, worksheets, etc) and we will have an orientation and setup. Tutoring is only 1 hour and the rest of the time is allotted for the orientation and preparing for the session. To have a background on what to do, please watch this orientation video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qL2XjIBKabw
WHY: Our goal is to encourage the children to stay in school and to build their confidence that they can do it. Many of them are really smart and talented but they face tremendous challenges due to their environment, preventing them to even want to continue schooling.
HOW: We will help you with the different ways to tutor the child. From playing the dictionary game, to spelling, to multiplication drills.
WHERE: He Cares Mission Building, 9 Mines St. Proj.6, Quezon City
ATTIRE: Casual, modest and simple clothes

Must be able to come at least 2x a week - we have found that the weekday children are in more need of a stable relationship with their voluntutors. This way, the children's progress will be monitored better.

- bring water, you might get thirsty!
- snacks to share with kids and volunteers (optional)
- ballpen and scratch paper
