Volunteers are matched as one-on-one tutors and mentors twice a week with high school students of all levels and needs. Volunteers provide students with individual lesson plans to improve their skills and knowledge in all curricular areas. Many students our tutors serve speak a language other than English as their first language. The Tutoring Center is open before school from 7:30 to 8:00 a.m. and after school from 2:45 to 3:30 p.m.
Academic Support Classes (Room 2403)
Students are assigned to the Tutoring Center during the school day for credit-bearing individualized academic support services within all subjects provided by CSV volunteers and peer tutors.
Classroom Assistants (School-wide)
Volunteers provide classroom assistance with both individualized and small group instruction within all curricular areas. The role of a classroom volunteer includes helping students stay on task, monitoring class work, and facilitating discussions. Many classroom volunteers become an integral part of the classroom community. Click here for the CRLS class schedule. The course catalogue is here.
College & Career Mentoring Program (Room 1501 [CCRC])
Volunteers help high school seniors, some of whom may be the first in their families to apply to college, by assisting with college research, applications, and college essays. Volunteers may also help students with financial aid, scholarship applications and supplemental essays. CRLS students may drop in to the school library any Wednesday at 2:30 to be matched with a mentor.
Drop-In Math Center (Room 2403)

Science Olympiad Program (Room 2405)
Volunteer advisers work closely with the high school team competing in the state-wide Science Olympiad competition by assisting them with research, problem solving and serving as a sounding board during the team’s preparation period. Science Olympiad Volunteers serve as mentors in all areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) to help foster careers in these fields and promote the educational goals of STEM. The program meets mid-November through mid-March after school.
