New Orleans Kids Partnership needs mentors and tutors

The New Orleans Kids Partnership is recruiting adult mentors and tutors for children and youths ages 7 through 21, with a goal of adding 200 volunteers for the 2013-14 school year.

The volunteers will serve with CASA New Orleans, Each One Save One, Orleans Parish 4-H, Start the Adventure in Reading, Urban League College Track and Goodwill Industries.

The New Orleans Kids Partnership helps match volunteers with the program that is the best fit.

Mentoring activities include academic tutoring, college preparation assistance, building job skills and leadership development.

The New Orleans Kids Partnership is part of the America’s Promise Alliance, dedicated to improving the lives of young people across the country.
