The Study Friends program is designed to help middle school students improve their reading, writing, math, and homework skills by pairing them with a trained adult volunteer tutor. The students are usually referred to the program by their student counselor or teacher.
Study Friends is a program that matches volunteer tutors with middle school students who need help with their schoolwork. The volunteer tutors meet with students for 1-2 hours each week (excluding school holidays), to help students with their homework.
