Community Service Opportunity - "Call For Tutors"

Wellington is committed to making our great hometown a place where everyone can live, learn, work, and play. As part of that commitment, our Community Service Department has developed a new afterschool tutoring program. Helping Youth by Providing Empowerment or "HYPE," provides assistance and empowerment for students in kindergarten through 12th grade, who require additional academic support. The program is a partnership between the Village and local schools.

Wellington seeks local teachers, high school students, and residents to become tutoring volunteers.
