Tutor Certificate make-ups will be held on Saturday and Sunday, February 26 and 27, 10am-3pm for those who cannot attend the Afterschool Tutor Summit. Register above and choose the makeup session to which you can commit.

The tutor certificate training is mandatory for new volunteers in PBHA tutoring programs, and strongly recommended for new PSN tutoring program volunteers. Volunteers should attend before beginning starting to tutor any youth, and need only attend the training once.

The training covers:

  • The Asset Based Approach to Positive Youth Development
  • Tools for Tutoring (Meta-cognition and Scaffolding)
  • The Cooperative Discipline Approach to Behavior Management
  • Safety, Boundaries (especially online) and Cultural Competence

Check with your program director about the time to register, or sign up individually! Please contact Talia Levitt at sdc@pbha.org if you have any questions. Register here for Tutor Summit.
