Student Open Circles is looking for McMaster retirees to help tutor and mentor at risk children and youth by volunteering alongside McMaster students this May-June in weekly groups that serve throughout the Hamilton community. You may choose from…

  • LAF (Learning and Fun) after school program – choose 1 of Mondays – Thursdays (2:50pm-5:30pm). Tutor and mentor at-risk kids from Grades 1-8 in small groups and one-on-one using creative and fun tools to assist with financial literacy activities, homework completion, and social skills.
  • Pathways to Education – Tuesdays or Thursdays (4:30-7:35pm) Tutor high school students through homework assignments, studying, social engagement and conversation.

You can choose to begin during the 1st week of April or the 1st week of May.

Student Open Circles is a local charitable organization that, through our Community Volunteer Circles program, connects over 300 McMaster University students each year to volunteer in weekly groups at placements such as after school programs with at-risk children, breakfast programs, and tutoring recent immigrant youth. Each volunteer group takes time at the end of the weekly volunteer session to reflect together on issues related to their service experience. In addition, Student Open Circles organizes weekly discussion groups and events on campus for students from diverse backgrounds and perspectives to explore topics such as deeper life meaning, spiritual practices, and social justice. If you are interested in other opportunities for involvement, other than the May-June groups, please feel free to contact me at the above address.
