K-12 Programs

SHU Students Tutoring High School StudentSHU student volunteers are a valuable resource to Bridgeport public schools, providing much-needed support to teachers and students. Volunteers are exposed to the realities of an inner-city classroom, while gaining valuable experience in the field of K-12 education. SHU student leaders help to coordinate these opportunities by organizing volunteer sign up, transportation and activities.

Sign up for all K-12 programs can be found weekly on Mondays in the Office of Volunteer Programs & Service Learning.

Student volunteers assist in schools in the following ways:

  • Teachers’ assistant
  • One-on-one tutoring
  • Read Alouds
  • Community afterschool programs
