After-School Program

Become a Tutor!

Tutor in our after-school program, supporting the success of our motivated fifth – eighth graders from underserved communities across San Francisco. We accept applications from adults, college students, high school students, and eighth graders at Breakthrough and SF Day.

The commitment is one afternoon per week, Monday – Thursday, from 4:30 – 6:30 pm. We anticipate that our fall 2023 program will run from the week of October 2 through the week of November 27, 2023. Tutors must commit for the entire semester, including a training session the evening of September 27, a 1:1 mid-semester check-in, and a mid-semester take-home training. (Please note that we are no longer accepting applications for spring 2023).

 Our application process for fall 2023 tutor positions will open in August 2023. To express interest and receive notification when the application launches, please complete the form above.

Questions about tutoring can be directed to Sara Marcopulos, Breakthrough’s Director of Curriculum and Instruction.

Other Volunteer Opportunities for Fall 2023

(You can apply using the same application.)

  • Teaching – Volunteers high school age and older can apply to teach an elective class during the second hour of after-school, instead of tutoring.
  • 1:1 Virtual High School Tutoring – Volunteers college age and older can work with 1:1 with one of our high school students over Zoom, on your own time. This requires familiarity with the higher-level academic content that high school students encounter.
