School-Year Program

Tutor in Fall 2024!

Volunteer as a tutor in fall 2024, supporting the success of our hard-working students from underserved communities across San Francisco. 


The after-school tutor commitment is one afternoon per week – Mon, Tue, or Wed, from 4:30 – 6:30 pm (or 4:30 – 5:30 pm for eighth grade tutors). Our fall 2024 program will run from Sept 30 through Nov 20, 2024. Tutors must commit for the entire time period, including a training session the evening of Sept 25 and a mid-semester check-in and take-home assignment. 

After-school program tutors are matched with a small number of our fifth – eighth graders, providing homework help, building organizational skills, and supporting them with enrichment completion. For this opportunity, we welcome applications from adults, college students, high school students, and eighth graders at Breakthrough and SF Day.


The virtual tutoring commitment is one hour per week over Zoom, according to your availability, from Oct – Nov 2024. You’ll be matched with one of our high school students who needs support in a specific subject. For this opportunity, we welcome applications from adults and college students.

Sign up to be notified when the Fall 2024 tutor application launches in August 2024. Questions can be directed to Sara Marcopulos-Riberal, Breakthrough’s Director of Curriculum and Instruction.
