Give back as a volunteer tutor for children in the Bronx

3168338-1Looking for ways to help others and give back to the community in a meaningful way?

There’s an opportunity here in the Bronx for you to make a real difference in the lives of young boys and girls. Volunteer as a tutor and mentor at The Crotona Center for Boys or the Rosedale Center for Girls and help Bronx youngsters with their schoolwork. You’ll become an important role model in the life of a child who truly needs your encouragement, support and positive example.

The Crotona Center for Boys needs male volunteers to work with students in grades 4-12 once a week throughout the academic year. Six different time slots are available, on weekdays and weekends, and transportation is provided roundtrip from Fordham’s Rose Hill campus.

The Rosedale Center for Girls offers female volunteers the chance to tutor girls in grades 4-12, also once each week through the academic year.

Both facilities, run by The South Bronx Educational Foundation, aim to help children develop into adults of good character through study, sports and mentoring. The staffs inspire youth to recognize the value of sound character and educational achievement, preparing them for the next level of school and helping them become responsible family members and good citizens. These programs are inspired by the teachings of the Catholic Church.

If you are a male student interested in volunteering at The Crotona Center, email Paul Fortunato or call him at 713-252-0447 or 718-861-1426.

Female students interested in volunteering at The Rosedale Center can email Alice Trimmer or call her at 718-328-4090.
