Volunteer as a Virtual Tutor for BC Students

As students across British Columbia prepare for a new academic year, many are seeking extra support to help them navigate challenging subjects and thrive academically.

Mentoring the Stars was co-founded by UBC students with a vision to provide academic support to grade K-12 students by matching them with virtual volunteer tutors. After supporting more than 400 students through the pandemic, Mentoring the Stars is continuing to see high demand from their program from hundreds of students looking for extra help. This grassroots volunteer-led organization was co-founded by three university students, two of whom are currently studying at UBC. Volunteers offer free virtual tutoring to students from all grade levels, backgrounds, and learning abilities – helping students find success as they re-enter classrooms this fall.

With many students awaiting support, Mentoring the Stars is currently seeking volunteer tutors to meet the increasing demand for academic support in BC. As tutors and students are individually matched based on their preferences, availability, and areas of knowledge, Mentoring the Stars is able to provide an impactful and flexible volunteer role with no previous tutoring experience required.
