Volunteer Opportunities

Get Involved


The Kealing Mentoring Program is looking for volunteers to help tutor students in various subjects. We are especially in need of math and science (algebra, pre-calculus, biology, chemistry and/or physics) tutors. Volunteers should also possess the desire to help teach skills for problem solving, setting goals, self-advocacy and assessing outcomes.

All individuals interested in volunteering must register as a Kealing school-based volunteer and complete a background check through Austin Partners In Education.
