Interested in making a difference in your community? Be a part of the HYPE and become a tutor! The typical HYPE tutor is a young professional just like you who is eager to get involved in service and volunteerism when not at the office. You’ll join tutors and staff members from Target, General Mills, Travelers and other employers around the Twin Cities.


Why tutor?

  • Join a group of young professionals—HYPE tutors come from a diverse range of backgrounds and participate in a wide array of hobbies and activities. Volunteering is a great way to network with recent college grads in the Twin Cities and form personal and professional relationships.
  • Give back to your community—HYPE offers tutors the opportunity to make a difference in the life of a child.  Volunteering lets young adults use their talents to help those who are less fortunate and strengthen the community in which they live and work. Tutors will also have the opportunity to interact with and learn from families representing a diverse array of cultures, religions, and backgrounds.
  • Gain career experience—As a HYPE tutor, you will develop skills that will translate into success at your workplace and beyond.


What do HYPE tutors do?

  • Become familiar with the HYPE Model—Before working with students, HYPE tutors attend an hour-long training seminar to learn our curriculum and lesson plan structure.
  • Work one-on-one with students—Most of our students attend two one-hour sessions each week, with one session dedicated to math and one to reading. HYPE volunteers, however, can choose to meet with students as many times per week as their schedules allow and can teach math, reading, or both subjects. While we do require a one-semester commitment from our tutors, scheduling is very flexible, and all tutoring occurs on weeknights and weekends. We also provide the option to be a substitute tutor for those with less availability.


HYPE relies on the unique influence of the young professional to better the community. If you are interested in the opportunity to tutor, please click here to begin the application process. After receiving your information, HYPE staff will contact you to guide you through the process. We will conduct a criminal background check and verify references to ensure the safety of our students. This will be followed by a short, informal interview with members of our recruiting team. Once these simple steps are complete, you’ll be scheduled to attend a training seminar and begin tutoring!
