Higher Achievement needs volunteer mentors and aides for middle school students

Higher Achievement, the non-profit that tutors middle school students needs some help -- they're looking for mentors and study hall aides, and they have a volunteer center in Adams Morgan. Take a look, it's a great program!
Close the opportunity gap for middle school students! Be a Mentor!
We are in need of Mentors and Study Hall Aides at 6 of our Achievement Centers in DC and Alexandria. The commitment is one evening per week, Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday; Study Hall Aides- 3:30-6:15pm, Mentors- 6-8:15pm.

96% of Higher Achievement graduates finish high school, and 76% graduate from college. In a city where 59% finish high school and only 9% get a college degree, these results are astounding – and desperately needed. Higher Achievement is creating lasting change in the lives of youth – and you can be a part of that change in the DC Metro area! 
By leveraging the power of communities, Higher Achievement's proven model provides a rigorous summer and afterschool learning environment, caring role models, and a culture of high expectations, resulting in college-bound scholars with the character, confidence, and skills to succeed. Scholars commit to 4 years of the program, and are committed to their academics.
