GAINESVILLE ― The Boys & Girls Clubs of Hall County this month launched a new free tutoring program called “Saturday Morning Learning Lab” aimed at giving members access to one-on-one attention from volunteer tutors.

Below is information about the program which is designed to help students who need academic support to be successful in school and in life.

What is it?
The Saturday Morning Learning Lab is a free tutoring program that will be offered to any member between the ages of 6 – 18 who needs to improve their reading, writing or math skills. Space is limited based upon the number of tutors available each week.

When and where is it offered?
The tutoring sessions will be offered every Saturday morning. Members can sign up for one of three time periods: 9 am, 10 am or 11 am. Each session will last one hour.

Tutoring sessions will be held at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Hall County Positive Place Club, 1 Positive Place, Gainesville (behind Fair Street Elementary School.)

What is expected?
The program strives to provide students with one-on-one attention from trained volunteer tutors. Participating students should bring assignments, books and questions pertaining to the subject that they are being assisted in. You must provide a copy of student’s report card or progress report showing a need in a minimum of one subject area.

How can I help?
The Saturday Morning Learning Lab needs additional volunteers who can tutor youth in reading, writing or mathematics. Volunteering is flexible. Volunteers can tutor every Saturday or just one Saturday a month. No prior tutoring experience is necessary. All volunteers will complete a Volunteer Application and submit to a background screening.

The tutoring program is completely free for participants so financial support is greatly appreciated to help offset costs for supplies, staff and other indirect costs associated with the program.

For additional information on how to get involved, contact Ken Huffman, unit director, 770-532-8102,
