Why Donate to Volunteer MPS?
Volunteers help in many ways that are unique to the needs of individual schools, classrooms and students. There are on average 7,000 volunteers who give their time to MPS each year.
Volunteer MPS trainings are presented by MPS staff and materials are district-approved to spread effective tutoring and homework strategies. We have seen test scores improve of those students who get weekly tutoring and attention in their academic studies.
The support from community members has been our greatest asset. Donations help us keep tutor trainings and resources available year-round and frequent so our volunteers are prepared and able to aide a student by using district-approved tutoring and homework strategies.
Only 57 percent of Minneapolis Public Schools students are at or above grade level in reading and only 40 percent are at or above grade level in math.
The majority of our volunteers have special ties to MPS: alumni, parents, future teachers, and neighbors.
We support our volunteers by providing them with useful resources and strategies to aide them in helping in the classroom.
