Fall 2021 Volunteer Tutoring

It’s that time of year again! Peace is currently recruiting volunteer tutors to help with afterschool programs. Volunteers assist elementary, middle, and high schoolers with homework and help build academic skills.

Our MINIMUM commitment for tutoring is once a week during the FALL semester (September-December). We expect that tutors miss no more than 1 session within the term.

Volunteers must be in 9th grade or older. We expect volunteers to be fully vaccinated.

To begin tutoring:

  1. Complete our online volunteer application.
  2. Attend one orientation at Peace Neighborhood Center (1111 North Maple Road).

Both new & returning volunteers must attend orientation.
Please bring your ID to orientation.
We complete DHS background checks on all volunteers 18 years and older.

Orientation Dates:
WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 22 6:30 – 7:30 PM
THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 23 6:30 – 7:30 PM
TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 28 6:30 – 7:30 PM

Food Distribution

Born out of the need to more quickly and efficiently distribute perishable food items, Peace has been partnering with Food Gatherers for a weekly produce distribution since 2011. Every Friday morning, a diverse population of people from the Washtenaw County community come to Peace to have a choice of fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as other items such as bread, desserts, and healthy snacks. The produce distribution at Peace began as a temporary, voucher based program. Today it is an open choice distribution that serves on average 40 families each week. Thank you to our partners at Food Gatherers for helping us meet this need.

If you are interested in volunteering with Peace Neighborhood Center Fridays from 8:30-11:30am, please click on the button below to view the online sign up sheet:
