We can always use tutors in math, science, English, English as a second language as well as basic study skills for our students who reside on our main campus or in one of our off-campus group homes. 

The tutor offers assistance with homework,
study skill strategies, and school subjects and
works together with the student to develop a
tutoring plan that fits the their individual needs.

We appreciate your dedication to the families and youth we serve. We view our volunteers as a valuable and essential part of our programs. However, given the recent local development of COVID-19, Optimist Youth Homes & Family Services has temporarily suspended all volunteer and mentor sessions with our clients.

This interruption is only temporary and please, accept our hearty appreciation! Once our volunteer program resumes, our clients and staff will eagerly welcome you back to your assignments. We appreciate the support and understanding and we wish everyone and their families good health.

If you are new to our organization and would like information on future volunteer opportunities, please feel free to email us at volunteer@oyhfs.org.
